Ranveer Singh is careful not to spill any beans about his upcoming film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, titled Padmavati. At an event on Monday where Ranveer was seen endorsing a toothpaste brand, we asked the actor about his relationship with mentor Sanjay Leela Bhansali. There have been rumours of rift between the two and some even said that Ranveer was no longer doing the film.
However putting to rest all such speculations, Ranveer told us, “I think Sanjay sir has a beauty smile. I will gift him a pack of this toothpaste when I meet him next.”
While a couple of days back, Ranveer was seen at Bhansali’s office, the actor is not yet ready to divulge any information regarding his role in Padmavati. Speaking to Indian Express.com, Ranveer said, “Right now I am not in a position to comment on my upcoming films. But as soon as there is some relevant information regarding my upcoming slate of films, I will announce it.”
Padmavati is a period drama that is baad on the life and times of Sultan Allauddin Khilji and his obsession for Rani Padmavati. While Ranveer and Deepika will reportedly essay the titular roles, it is speculated that Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing Deepika’s onscreen husband in the film.
The 31-year-old actor is now being addressed as a ‘superstar’ by many and Ranveer says he is grateful to his fans for showing immense love towards him. “I will take that (the superstar tag) as a compliment. I go mad when I hear this. I thank my fans for all the love that they have given me till now.”
