- Ranveer says he has a very special connection with Sanjay Leela Bhansali
- Bhansali has had a profound influence on me as an artiste: Ranveer
- Padmavati releases on December 1
"He (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) has had a profound influence on me as an artiste. He has moulded me into the artiste that I am today. He has pushed me beyond barriers and has made me believe in the notion that there are no limits to what I can achieve as a performer," said Ranveer.
Of his connection with the Black director, Ranveer told PTI: "We have a very special connection - something the entire fraternity and audience acknowledges and recognises. And this is most evident when we collaborate on a hot set together - when we are in the thick of shooting a scene - that's when the chemistry can be witnessed in all its glory. Being directed by him is by far one of the most rewarding and fulfilling creative experiences I have had in my entire life. His relentless pursuit of excellence inspires me to raise my game every single time I go out and perform."
Padmavati features Deepika Padukone in the titular role while Shahid Kapoor plays her onscreen husband Maharawal Ratan Singh. Padmavati releases on December 1.
