Extravagance is another name for the ace director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The magical sets he creates for his movies is mindblowing. Devdas, Ramleela, and Bajirao Mastani were not only one of the best movies in terms of story and visuals but also bagged most of the awards after their release. The latest movie to join the bandwagon is ‘Padmavati’. The story behind the jewelry making of the movie’s key character – Rani Padmini is astonishing. It took nearly 200 craftsmen around 600 days and 400 kgs of Gold in the jewelry making.

SANJAY LEELA BHANSALI – DIRECTOR DEMANDING PERFECTION
Sanjay Leela Bhansali invests a lot of time and money for his movies which is evident on the 70mm screen. But what makes the audience spellbound is – his grand sets, master craftsmanship in directing movies and the country’s royalty and glory he brings forth onscreen for the viewers.

Besides, this would be Bhansali’s third collaboration with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone while for Shahid Kapoor, this would be his first venture with Bhansali.
