The countdown is on for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Ram Leela'. With exactly 100 days to go for the film's release, it is time for Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone to gear up for its completion and promotion. Meanwhile Bhansali is making sure that it is not just his lead pair that delivers; even those in the supporting roles - Richa Chadda, Abhimanyu Shekhar Singh and Shveta Salve - are up for the challenge as well.
"Those who are in the second lead can't take it light at all," informs a source, "Yes, Ranveer has gained quite some respectability as an actor, especially with 'Lootera', while Deepika is happening in a major way after a hat trick of successes. However this doesn't mean that others can take it light. As a matter of fact, Sanjay Sir expects a lot from his second lead performers. He wants an entire package affair to work."
This is reflected from the fact that other than personally supervising everything from look and costumes of the actors along with upholstery, lighting and every nook and corner of the film's sets, he is giving complete attention to everything that is associated with others in the cast and the scene as well.
"I had heard that Sir is a perfectionist but I am seeing it all with my own eyes," says Richa, Even though essentially the film is a story about Ram and Leela, I as well as others are made to feel extra special as well. I wanted to do the film just for Sir and I am glad I did it. I have also come to realise that whether people like it or not, he does his own thing. That shows his conviction."
Now one hopes that pretty much translates on the big screen too once this co-production of Eros and Sanjay Leela Bhansali releases all over on 15th November.
