Deepika Padukone is getting praises for her role in Padmaavat from the entire film fraternity. Despite threats from the fringe outfits, the film has managed to garner attention and viewers in large numbers.
Bhansali's magnum opus has left everyone in awe of his film and the cast's performance including Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Not just the viewers, but Bollywood celebrities too, are all praises for the film.
One of them was the iconic '70s love couple Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor. They congratulated Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone with flowers and a note, "Excellent work!!! So very proud of you. Love Neetu & Rishi Kapoor."
While the Kapoor family extended an olive branch to Deepika, Rishi made a guffaw. Rishi Kapoor posted an insensitive joke about Ranveer Singh and Padmaavat and it seems like his wife wants to make amends. Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor sent Deepika a bouquet of flowers and congratulated her on her ground-breaking role in the film.
Deepika got so overwhelmed seeing this token of love coming from Neetu and Rishi that she posted the pic on Instagram and captioned it saying, “it was so lovely seeing both of you yesterday…Thank You for all the love & appreciation.”
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmaavat was the highly awaited film in 2017. Both Ranveer and Shahid, too, are getting praises for their performances as Allaudin Khilji and Maharawal Ratan Singh. The film has so far minted Rs. 5 crore with just paid previews and is also off to a rock-solid start overseas.
Various other celebrities congratulated and appreciated the star-cast of the Sanjay Leela Bansali-directorial.
