- He's capable of portraying me so differently in three films: Deepika
- Deepika also collaborated with Bhansali in Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani
- Padmavati is scheduled to release on December 1
Padmavati's release is currently being opposed by several Rajput outfits over the film's alleged factual inaccuracies and misrepresentation of historical facts. When asked how she researches for her roles for Mr Bhansali's film, Deepika told IANS: "I think it depends from director to director, project to project. I think there are certain films where I would do my own research and prep, and then when you work with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali, you just follow his vision. He is the captain of the ship."
Of collaborating with Mr Bhansali, Deepika said: "He doesn't say much to me, and I don't need to say much to him. And it's an observation people also around us have made... There's immense amount of love, respect and trust."
Deepika Padukone's Padmavati also stars Shahid Kapoor and it is scheduled to hit the screens on December 1.
