Padmavati will be a special film: Deepika Padukone
The actor is playing the titular role in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial
Deepika Padukone says that she can't wait for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial Padmavati to be released. "I will only say that the love we all are getting, whether it is for posters or trailer or song, I think we all are very excited and overwhelmed by the response and can't wait to share this film with everyone," she says. "It has been an incredible journey and we are literally counting the days," she adds.
Padmavati is caught in the eye of the storm with caste and religious bodies, and even political groups, protesting against the film.
Last week, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali released a video clarifying about the rumoured dream sequences in the film, but protests continue to grow and Deepika says she has nothing to comment about that.
Post the first single Ghoomar, the makers recently released the second song Ek Dil Ek Jaan from the film and it went viral. "We are very happy that everyone appreciated the song so much. This is one of my favourite songs," says Deepika.
The film, which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles, is slated to release on December 1.
