Deepika Padukone has asked her Padmaavat director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to give her the outfit she had worn during the Jauhar scene as a token to treasure for life.
As Rani Padmavati, Deepika Padukone shone in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opusPadmaavat 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.
Deepika revealed to the daily, “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.”
To this, Deepika laughed and revealed, “I hope so. I really hope so. That’s actually what my family is always telling me. My sister especially and my mother, they are always like ‘do you have to die in every film?’ So yes, I hope that whatever film Ranveer and I do next, that we don’t end our lives in the way that we have and also maybe, a less emotionally draining film. Something just lighter on the heart and on the emotion part of it.”
On the other hand, when we had asked Ranveer the same question, the actor revealed, “Deepika is a wonderful artist and one of the best actors we ever had in Hindi cinema. I hope to collaborate with her in more films in the future.”
