Precious time with family

Deepika Padukone has been one busy bee — she has a slew of films lined up and has been shooting for ‘Chennai Express’ and Ram Leela. But luckily, she was still able to take some time off and visit her parents recently, which is something she is very particular about — all thanks to her Ram Leela co-star, Ranveer Singh.

At the end of each year, Deepika likes to be with her family to ring in a new one. However, at the end of last year, she was committed to shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela with Ranveer. Ranveer has lately been running from the sets of Ram Leela in Gujarat to the sets of Gunday — where he is acting alongside Arjun Kapoor of Ishaqzaade fame and Priyanka Chopra — in Kolkata.

Unfortunately, the actor injured himself on the sets of Gunday, which eventually affected Bhansali’s Ram Leela as well.

“Ranveer Singh was shooting simultaneously for Gunday and Ram Leela. In fact, the whiskered look that he sports for Sanjay Bhansali’s film has been incorporated into his personality in Gunday for the want of a choice.

Remember back in 1969, when Rajesh Khanna’s bearded look in Ittefaq had to be incorporated into Do Raaste as the superstar shot simultaneously for both?” says a source.

Bhansali was all set to complete the shooting of some dramatic scenes between Ranveer and Deepika, but Ranveer’s accident forced the director to postpone the shoot. And Deepika quietly took off to Bangalore to be with her family.
