Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are currently enjoying the success of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directorial ‘Padmaavat’ which has earned over Rs 250 crore in the Indian market and Rs 472 crore overall including the worldwide box office collection.
In a recent interview with a leading daily, Deepika Padukone was asked about her rumoured boyfriend and ‘Padmaavat’ co-star Ranveer Singh. Deepika revealed that Ranveer and Shahid were apparently discouraged from doing the film. She told a leading daily, “I know many people discouraged him. He still did the film, and he did it so well. Even Shahid knew what his role was, and still did the film with complete honesty. Both Shahid and Ranveer were told ‘Why are you doing this film? It’s titled Padmavati’. But the movie would not have been the film it is, if it wasn’t for both of them.”
While speaking about his stardom in the same interview, Deepika made a statement that has shocked fans.
“I’m happy Ranveer did such good work; very few people have that superstar quality and he has it. However, he will have to work hard, because he’s not there just yet,” Deepika reportedly said.
