Fresh from the release of “Tamasha”, in which she romanced former beau Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone is all geared up for the release of her next film “Bajirao Mastani”, co-starring Ranveer Singh. The actress says she is comfortable working with both actors.
Asked how promoting “Bajirao Mastani” with Ranveer is different from promoting “Tamasha” with Ranbir, Deepika said during a session at Agenda Aaj Tak: “Many told me,‘You have two releases back to back with not even a month’s gap, you’ll be exhausted’. Just like you can see, he (Ranveer) doesn’t let me talk much, which is good. He himself starts on his own tone.”
“On other hand, Ranbir speaks very less. At that time, it becomes my job to make up (for him). But during ‘Bajirao Mastani’ promotions, he (Ranveer) makes up for me.”
“I’m comfortable with both of them. It depends on the situation. I’m very adaptable,” Deepika added.
Set to release on December 18, “Bajirao Mastani”, directed by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, also stars Priyanka Chopra.
Talking about the film, Ranveer said: “Basically every Bhansali film is tagged as an emotional drama. But in ‘Bajirao Mastani’, people will get to see everything from emotional drama to action, romance, comedy and songs.”
While Deepika doesn’t have any other project lined up immediately after “Bajirao Mastani”, Ranveer will next be seen in filmmaker Aditya Chopra’s “Befikre”. The film will also star actress Vaani Kapoor.
“Since a long time I’ve had a dream to work with my mentor Aditya Chopra. I always wanted to star in a film in which he directs and I’ll be acting. It will be a beautiful romantic film. It will also feature Vaani. I’m really looking forward to this project. In ‘Befikre’, I’ll be clean shaved with long hair,” Ranveer said.
“Aditya sir is the reason because of which I’m here as he gave me my first break with his production venture ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’.”
