Everybody knows that Kareena had been offered “Ram Leela” opposite Ranveer Singh. The film is being directed by Sanjay LeelaBhansali. Kareena who had initially said yes to the film later opted out. It was then Deepika Padukone who stepped into her shoes.
It is said that the filmmaker pays an ode to Deepika’s beauty in the film. Deepika who with time has learnt the art of looking stunning in every frame, looks gorgeous even in her rural avatar in the film.
A little bit about the premise of the film has been let out. Apparently in the film, she is playing the most fine-looking girl, in the village. She remains in hibernation until found by Ranveer who is playing the character of Ram. The film is an out-and-out romantic film. Evidently, the film also has some intimacy. A source said, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali has shot some sizzling-hot love scenes with Deepika and Ranveer of the kind that neither the director nor his lead pair has ever shot. In fact this sort of passion has never been shown in Hindi cinema.”
The film pays attention to personifying the beauty of the female lead on celluloid. It had been said that when Kareena left the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had been looking for another attractive face of Bollywood. Striking looks had been a pre-requisite for the role of Leela. Thus Deepika being signed on for this film only endorses a fact- that she is gorgeous- known by all.
The first look of the film has already been released. According to Ranveer, the poster seems to have captured the core essence of the film well.
He said, “I think it has given the right signals about what kind of zone the film is in – dramatic, romantic, epic, massy, love story. It looks grand.” He confessed that the response to the poster has been encouraging. He also said that he hopes that all the publicity materials that are to be released henceforth remains true to the spirit of the film.
He said, “It (the poster) has been designed to give you a clue about what this film might be. If everybody is understanding that from the first look, then I think we have hit the nail on the head. I hope we can continue to do with more of our publicity material.”
Ranveer added saying, “It has been a wonderful experience working with Deepika. The shoot I think should wrap up a couple of months before November. It is going very well.”
“Ram Leela” also has Richa Chadda. The film will be releasing on the 29th of November, 2013.
