"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Do you recall this line from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet? We all have seen a number of plays based on this epic love story but somehow we are never bored of it. Each version brings to us something new. Likewise, we have filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is all set to bring to us Ram Leela which is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
Bhansali's version of the story will be set in violent times. The movie stars Ranveer Singh as Ram and Deepika Padukone plays the role of Leela. This long awaited film is finally arriving closer to its release date.
Being a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production and also due to the star cast, there are already high expectations for this movie which is slated to hit the theatres on November 15, 2013. Moreover, we recently saw Deepika Padukone being highly acclaimed for her performance in Chennai Express, so the expectations from the diva have shot up further.
The first look of the movie was released earlier and we saw Ranveer holding Deepika who is sporting a 30 kilo lehenga for this still. Now we have some latest pictures of this upcoming movie. We have put down a side show which has both movie stills and on the sets images of Ram Leela. These gorgeous pictures make us more eager to watch this upcoming movie.
