Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has heaped praises on Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the director responsible for giving him his two most successful films – ‘Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The actor added that he regards Bhansali as one of the great filmmakers of all-time in Hindi Cinema.
“I truly regard him as one of the greatest filmmakers of Hindi cinema in all time. His form and flamboyance are unique to him and there are some things that only he can do” Ranveer said.
Ranveer also said Bhansali has this gift of being able to extract outstanding performances from his actors.
“When I try to describe the way he is with actors, I run out of words. It’s truly inexplicable the way he manages to extract great performances from his actors. It’s just a gift that he has” Ranveer added.
Ranveer, Bhansali and Deepika Padukone will be reuniting for their third film together ‘Padmavati’ which is scheduled to release later this year. The film also has Shahid Kapoor.
Bhansali has previously directed classics like ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘Devdas’ and ‘Black’.
