Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have always appeared to share good rapport. This has been more evident since they have come together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Padukone was recently heard revealing that she sees her co-star as her first friend in Bollywood.
Padukone said, according to Indian Express, “Priyanka was the first film person I met when I came here.��She was a huge star. I had just joined. She was the first friend I made. We were so comfortable shooting for Pinga song that it troubled a few people because it went against what a lot of people thought it would be. People expected it there would be a lot of tension regarding what she wearing and what I am wearing. It was completely different. Sanjay Leela Bhansali would jokingly say why can�۪t you fight”.
Padukone also revealed that they used to stay around on the sets of ‘Bajirao Mastani’ for each other’s shots, “It was great fun. While shooting we watched each others back. If there was a step which I would find difficult, she would encourage me and if she would something difficult I would encourage her. There were days when we both wanted to give up and there were days when we both came in with the same kind of energy. It�۪s been a lot of fun and I couldn�۪t have asked for a better co-star”.
Ranveer Singh is the male lead in the film which is slated for release on 18th December.
