Superstar Deepika Padukone, who will be seen alongside her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh in forthcoming film Bajirao Mastani, says the latter is very “sensitive” and “emotional” in real life unlike his onscreen image.
“Many people say to me that you are so lucky (to have Ranveer)… 24 hour entertainment and livewire. But actually he is not the same in real life.
” On Saturday Deepika said,
Ranveer, meanwhile, replied, “I don’t feel like showing my inner self in public because I’m very shy of all this.”
The duo has re-teamed with their Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Bajirao Mastani, which also stars Priyanka Chopra.
Asked whether they knew the story of Peshwa Bajirao before signing the film, Ranveer said, “I did my schooling in Mumbai at a private school where Marathi was a compulsory subject till fifth standard. But in our whole syllabus, including Marathi and history, there wasn’t any mention of Peshwa Bajirao.”
“The syllabus only focused until Chhatrapati Shivaji’s exploits. First time I got to know about Bajirao Mastani was through a film magazine. Then while we were doing Ram-Leela, Bhansali told me about this project which he was planning to make for the past 12 years,” he added.
Deepika also echoed related view .The ChennaiExpress actress said, “There was no mention of Bajirao in my syllabus too. Just because of this film I have got to know him and Mastani. I heard that Bhansali wants to make film like this which leaded by Salman khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan”.
Their upcoming movie is set to hit the cinemas from this Friday (December 18), challenging King Khan’s mega ‘Dilwale’, which is also releasing the same day.
