Kangana Ranaut reveals Sanjay Leela Bhansali approached her for Padmaavat and a song in Ram-Leela
Kangana Ranaut recently revealed to Mid-Day that she was narrated the script of Padmaavat by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She added that she was also offered a special song in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela.
During the interaction, there was a mention about how two big movie moments in her life, Black (2005) and Devdas (2002), both involved Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and if she had met him since then. Ranaut revealed: “Oh, yes! In fact, we had a brief meeting for Padmaavat. He narrated me the script.”
She added that because she was involved with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi at the time, the talks about Padmaavat did not materialise. “Yes, there was this conversation, and I was doing Manikarnika then, so it didn't go anywhere. But we had a brief narration. Before that as well, he wanted me to do the Ram-Leela song. He is a filmmaker who can leave strong impressions on you, especially if you are a fresh mind.”
She recently said if she or her film, Manikarnika, do not win a National Award, it would lead to questioning the credibility of the award ceremony.
