Deepika Padukone spends New Year’s Eve with family, thanks to Ranveer Singh
Actress Deepika Padukone can’t thank her Ram Leela co-star Ranveer Singh enough for giving her time off to spend time with her parents for the New Year.
Each year Deepika likes to be with her family at this time of the year. However, this year she was committed to shoot for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela with Ranveer.
The actor injured himself on the sets of Gunday, which eventually affected the shoot of Mr Bhansali’s Ram Leela
Ranveer has been simultaneously shooting for Ram Leela in Gujarat and Gunday in Kolkata. The actor injured himself on the sets of Gunday, which eventually affected the shoot of Mr Bhansali’s Ram Leela.
“Ranveer Singh was shooting simultaneously for Gunday and Ram Leela. In fact, the whiskered look that he sports for Sanjay Bhansali’s film has been incorporated into his personality in Gunday for the want of a choice. Remember back in 1969 how Rajesh Khanna’s bearded look in Ittefaq had to be incorporated in Do Raaste as the superstar shot simultaneously for both,” said a source.
Mr Bhansali was all set to complete the shooting of some dramatic scenes but Ranveer’s accident forced the director to postpone the film’s shoot.
And Deepika quietly left for her hometown Bangalore to be with her family to celebrate New Year.
Gunday (transl. Outlaws) is a 2014 Indian Hindi-language gangster thriller film written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra. The film features Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan in the lead roles. Set in 1971–1988 Calcutta, Gunday is a story about two best friends and outlaws, who fall in love with a cabaret dancer, which causes rivalry and misunderstandings between them.
Zafar conceived the film as an amalgam of stories he had heard from his father as a child about the effects of war-caused immigration and the Mafia Raj’s illegal marketing of coal. He wrote the film as a tale of the consequences of the struggle of two outlaws against the system, using his father’s stories as a backdrop for the characters. Principal photography began in Mumbai in December 2012 before moving to Kolkata, where extensive filming was done. The soundtrack was produced by Sohail Sen and the lyrics were penned by Irshad Kamil. It was the last Yash Raj Film narrated to Yash Chopra.
