The actress thanks designer Anju Modi because her costumes helped her get into the character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest directorial venture.
"Anju has done a fabulous job considering this is her first feature film...I felt in the character the minute I wore the clothes. I felt like Leela," said the actress here in an interview.
"I think that is the most important aspect when a designer comes on board. It's so important to allow the actor to feel like the character," added the actress who also appreciated Modi's understanding of colours and cuts.
Set in the backdrop of Gujarat, the film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare's epic love story "Romeo and Juliet", which will see Deepika romancing Ranveer Singh when the film comes out Nov 29.
