Deepika Padukone, who has been tasting back-to-back success with her films, says she finds her last release ‘Padmaavat’ very close to her heart. The film happens to be her third film with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
As Rani Padmavati, Deepika Padukone shone in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat which also starred Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh.
In particular, it was the Jauhar scene that left everyone flabbergasted and shocked. For Deepika, it was amongst the most strenuous scenes she has shot for and the end result was a beautiful masterpiece.
According to a leading daily, Deepika has requested Bhansali to give her the outfit she wore during the Jauhar scene as a token to treasure for life.
“Padmaavat, in its entirety, has been a journey that will stay with me forever. The climax sequence, especially, has been the most intense, challenging and memorable scene I have ever done. And to commemorate those moments, I’ve requested Sanjay sir if I could keep the outfit that I wore.”
Padmaavat found a place of pride for itself in the 300 cr club with its massive box office collections. The dust finally seems to have settled on the controversies that mired the film.
