Deepika as Leela
Her detractors can eat their words now! Deepika Padukone is delivering hit after hit, and her performance has improved remarkably with each film! The trade pundits have already put her in the No. 1 game along with the likes of Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Now, what’s next, Deepika!
The actress had to work really hard on her character. She even learnt the folk dance Garba for the songs in the film. The perfectionist that he is, Bhansali brought over traditional Garba dancers from Gujarat to teach the Garba in the traditional way to Deepika, and it was a daunting task, reveal sources.
Also, Deepika Padukone’s look takes a lot from Aishwarya Rai’s character and get-up from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. You can catch her images from the sets of the film, and needless to say she looks beautiful and ethereal. Styled by Anju Modi for the film, Deepika was given gherdaar lehengas to look the part.
The lehenga she sports in the first look weighs almost 30 kgs, and has a 50 meter ghera designed by Anju Modi. It’s learnt that the designer went out of her way to bring the intricacies of Kutch to Deepika’s wardrobe in Ram Leela, and to meet Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s tough standards.
You can also notice Deepika sporting sindhoor on her forehead in the scenes. Does she play a married girl? As Sanjay Leela Bhansali has kept most of the details under wraps, one needs to wait till November 15 when Ram Leela hits the theatres. For the time being, catch the stills from the sets of the movie:
