Ranveer Singh, you know why Deepika Padukone owes you one this New Year
Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone can’t thank her ‘Ram Leela’ co-star Ranveer Singh enough for giving her time off to visit 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.
Ranveer has lately been running from the sets of ‘Ram Leela’ in Gujarat to the sets of ‘Gunday’ in Kolkata. The actor injuried himself on the sets of ‘Gunday’, which eventually affected Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’ also.
“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 into ‘Do Raaste’ as the superstar shot simultaneously for both,” said a source.
Bhansali was all set to complete the shooting of some dramatic scenes between Ranveer and Deepika, but Ranveer’s accident forced the director to postpone the shoot.
And Deepika has quietly taken off to Bangalore to be with her family.
Ittefaq (1969 film)
Ittefaq (English: Coincidence) is a 1969 Indian suspense thriller film produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by his brother Yash Chopra. The film stars Rajesh Khanna in the lead with Nanda, Bindu, Madan Puri and Iftekhar playing supporting roles and has music by Salil Chowdhury. The film became a “semi-hit” at the box office. The movie is a remake of 1965 American movie Signpost to Murder which had earlier been adapted into a Gujarati drama Dhummas starring Sarita Joshi.
It was the fourth Bollywood film (after Naujawan, Munna and Kanoon) that did not have any songs in it. What was remarkable was that a previous production from the same production house, i.e. B.R.Films, namely Kanoon, made in 1960, was also a song-less film and with the same leading lady Nanda. Another common feature of both Kanoon and Ittefaq was that in both these song-less films Salil Chowdhary was the Music Director. This film is counted among the 17 consecutive hit films starring Rajesh Khanna in lead role between 1969 and 1971, by including the two multi starrer films Marayada and Andaz to the 15 consecutive solo hits he gave from 1969 to 1971. This is also the last film Yash Chopra would direct for his brother before branching out to form his own production company Yash Raj Films
