    Yes! You read it right. We came to know that the leggy lass of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone turned Madhubala for her on-screen lover, Ranveer Singh.

    We came to know that, the legend, Birju Maharaj was training for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period romance, Bajirao Mastani.

    Birju Maharaj said, "I told Deepika to think of Ranveer, who is her on screen lover, as her Kishore and like Madhubala had danced to his tunes in Jhumroo, she should dance the same way for her Bajirao." as Mumbai Mirror reported.

    But her performance also required a range of emotions, as she had to portray the role of a warrior and a lover at the same time and for that she needed a role model to focus on.

    Later, Birju Maharaj also appreciated Deepika and said, "Deepika aced it. The song looks like a Raja Ravi Varma painting brought to life. She's tall and beautiful, I will choreograph her in any song if she wants me to. She takes my scolding in the right spirit."

    Interestingly, Deepika took two months to master the iconic peacock movements, which are distinctive to the Indian classical dance form.

    It's a pity that film is releasing at the end of the year because it's really difficult to wait that long to see Deepika in her never-seen-before avatar!
