Deepika Padukone has worked with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in three films and every time the duo comes together, they create sheer magic on celluloid. Padukone accepts that their latest film Padmaavat has been the most challenging project she has ever done in her career so far. However, she is happy that her hard work has paid off well. The actress has been receiving an overwhelming response for her stellar performance in the period drama ever since its release.
The much-talked-about Jauhar sequence, which was a major highlight of the historical saga, was the most difficult part for Deepika. No wonder, the actress recently reached out to Sanjay Leela Bhansali and requested him to give her the outfit that she had worn for the climax scene as a remembrance. The actress wants to treasure it 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,” Deepika Padukone says.
Talking about the historic success of the movie, Padmaavat has become the first non-Khan starrer in the much publicised INR 300 crore club. It is also Deepika Padukone’s 7th entry in the elite INR 100 crore club and her hat-trick in the INR 200 crore club.
Also starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, Padmaavat hit the silver screen on 25th January 2018.
