Coming back to Deepika and Bhansali, it is said that the filmmaker acted as cupid between Deepika Padukone and her husband Ranveer Singh. While the couple considers him as the catalyst in their love story, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is always praises when it come to them. In an interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Bhansali talked about Deepika Padukone and said, “There is a lot more to her. Lots! Deepika is one of the finest artistes I’ve worked with. Such thehrao and such grace! She never surrenders to melodrama even when there is ample temptation to do so. Look at her speech in front of the women before they commit Jauhar. Such control, restraint and so much emotive power without tripping over. I was so overwhelmed by how she handled that scene; I gave her a 500-rupee note after she finished the scene. I am sure that token of my appreciation is more valuable and precious to her than the entire remuneration she got for the film.”
He further added, ‘’From some angles, she reminds me of Vyjanthimalaji. Sometimes she reminds me of Hemaji. And the grace with which she has performed the ‘Ghoomar’ dance reminds me of Waheedaji. I strongly believe Deepika has the potential to join the ranks of our legendary actresses.”
