It is known that Deepika Padukone is juggling between Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Bajirao Mastani' and Imtiaz Ali's 'Tamasha', with both slated to release by year-end. However, if the latest buzz doing the industry rounds is to be believed, the shoot of 'Tamasha' might have to wait a while, as the actress is busy shooting for 'Bajirao Mastani'.
Apparently, only five days worth of shoot is left for 'Tamasha' to be completed, however, Bhansali is insistent that the actress wraps up portions of 'Bajirao Mastani' as the other actress in film, Priyanka Chopra, leaves for Bhopal soon for Prakash Jha's 'Gangaajal 2'.
A source close to the development said, "Deepika and Priyanka have some important sequences to shoot together after which the latter leaves for Bhopal. There has anyway been a lot of back and forth in the films' schedule due to Ranveer's injury and Deepika's 'Piku' promotions."
While Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Imtiaz Ali and Deepika Padukone remained unavailable for comment, a source close to the actress said, "Yes Deepika has five days of work left for Tamasha and she will be shooting for it very soon."
Reportedly, even while Deepika was shooting for 'Ram Leela' and 'Happy New Year' (HNY) simultaneously and a situation came whereby Deepika had to shoot some portions of HNY, it was difficult convincing Bhansali to let the actress give time to the latter.
