Deepika Padukone, who has turned a global star, after her Hollywood debut film xXx: Return of Xander Cage, has been roped in for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmavati. Interestingly, Padmavati director has suggested Deepika to stay away from all kind of controversies.
Recently, the maker of xXx: Return of Xander Cage, D.J Caruso confirmed that Deepika will be part of his film sequel. Soon after his confirmation, Deepika shared few steamy pics of her recent photo shoot for a leading magazine.
In the photoshoot, Deepika is looking smouldering and raising the temperature even higher with her bold avatar. Donning a white body hugging two-piece body suit, Deepika looked sizzling hot in the pic.
Notably, Deepika was also trolled for her bold avatar by fans on the internet. Deepika was not just trolled by her fans, but Bhansali was also upset with this bold step of Deepika.
He also asked Deepika to keep herself away from any kind of controversies ahead of the release of his historical drama Padmavati, which was already in many controversies due to the subject of the film.
Talking about Bhansali’s reaction a source said, ‘’Deepika is essaying the role of a historical character, a Rani (queen) in Padmavati and to pose for steamy photoshoots right before the release of the film, is unacceptable to him (Sanjay Leela Bhansali). He feels the pictures could rub people the wrong way. After what has happened in the past, he just cannot afford to risk it all for a third time.”
Deepika’s film Padmavati is releasing on November 17 and also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles.
