SanjayLeela Bhansali who turned lucky this year as a producer with Rowdy Rathore is all set to don the cap oif a director once again with his next film Ram Leela.
Tentatively titled Ram Leela, Bhansali’s new film will star Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The movie has got Ranveer Singh’s wait to work with Kareena to an end. He had once mentioned on national television that Kareena Kapoor is his fantasy. The movie has also brought Kareena 13-year-long wait to an end. “We have wanted to work together for a while and I am immensely excited. We met for the first time around the release of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999). She was working on her debut, Refugee (2000), then. So, we’ve been constantly thinking and talking to each other. I’m happy that this has finally worked out now,” says Bhansali.

Ask the Devdas (2002) director anything about Ram Leela and he corrects us first, “It’s not titled Ram Leela. Let’s call it my new film with Kareena and Ranveer (Ranveer Singh). It’s a full-on masala movie and is in the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam kind of space. I am going to have a blast.”
Talking more about the film which is set to go on floors in July this year, Bhansali said “It’s a full on masala movie and is in the ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ kind of space…With 11 songs and great locales, I feel the chemistry between Ranveer and Kareena is going to rock.”
For the longest time, rumours suggested that Ranbir Kapoor and Sonkashi Sinha were being cast for this project? “Kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna (people will keep saying these things, it’s their job). There’s always some other star cast that’s named every time I start a new film. I have always faced such issues with my films. All I have to say is, I have chosen these people, dekho na inko (please see them). What’s in your mind is a different matter.’
