Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a very fine director of Bollywood. His film- making style is popular worldwide. Like Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions it is a dream of every actor to work with Sanjay.
While Sanjay Leela Bhansali is so reputed director in the industry, Deepika Padukon is a very dedicated and skillful actress. We have seen them working together for big films like Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmavat. All three films were a major success in cinema.
Infect, when the film Gangubai Kathiawadi was announced, Deepika’s name was speculated for the lead role. But, it falls in Alia Bhatt’s court.
Deepika was quite upset by Sanjay because of missing this project. And now as Deepika is about to start working on her new project. She wants to take Sanjay onboard.
For Deepika, Sanjay is like a mentor and therefore she wants him to direct her film, Draupadi. Deepika thinks no one can best direct her film, Draupadi than Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She approached him for the same but, he politely refused to work
The reason behind Sanjay’s denying to work for Draupadi was the film Gangubai. This film as well as the film Baiju Bawra is said to be Sanjay’s all-time dream.
Hence, he refused to direct Draupadi. However, as of now both are busy with their other projects and hope to see them again on the same board soon.
