Why did Deepika cry on 'Ram Leela' sets?
An anxious Deepika Padukone broke down on the set after being handed an allegedly 'difficult' scene by Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Contrary to her rather bindaas attitude in life, it looks like Deepika Padukone is not immune to the rigmaroles of being an actor. Our sources tell us that on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next, the actress apparently had an anxiety-attack and needed some pep-talk from the director to overcome her fears.
Our sources say that a few days ago, Dippy was asked to do a scene that would depict her on-screen character to break down in tears. The insider states, “No one knew what hit her but she began crying and telling the crew she wouldn’t be able to do the scene. Bhansali is known to extract the deepest of emotions from his actors so it’s no surprise.”
Apparently then Bhansali proceeded to give Dippy a pep-talk and sat her down for a chat. The source adds, “Bhansali postponed the shoot for her. Deepika returned the next day and took the bull by its horns.” We hear the actress delivered the same scene in one take flat.
