Deepika Padukone is happy that her sizzling chemistry with beau Ranveer Singh in Ram- Leela was appreciated and accepted by everyone. Not only this but she and Ranveer have become one of the most sought out couples in Bollywood. However she believes that her chemistry with Ranveer in Bajirao Mastani would be even better than Ram-Leela. She says she is lucky to be able to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali again and she could identify herself with a strong woman character like Leela or Mastani. However she doesn't divulge more about the film Bajirao Mastani. She says that she will start work on Imtiaz Ali's next film with Ranbir Kapoor very soon.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali had conceptualized Bajirao Mastani almost 15 years back and wanted to cast Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the title roles. However the plans went awry as did their relationship, and finally he decided to cast younger actors.
