Sanjay Leela Bhansali might be a tough-nut on the sets but the man also has a caring and sensitive side to him.
During the shoot of his next venture, Ram Leela which stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, cinematographer Ravi Varman had an injury and wished to continue working but Bhansali decided to reschedule the shoot!
And when a wooden plank fell on a junior artist, the filmmaker stopped the shoot and called for a doctor immediately. He also took care of her medical expenses and ensured she had sufficient rest.
Sources say Bhansali is respectful towards every single person on the set and shares a one-on-one equation with everyone. Says a crew member, “Sanjay is known as a hard taskmaster and perfectionist. However, very few know that he has a soft side and is the first to praise a job brilliantly done. He is very attached to his team and personally thanked everyone for their hard work. He does not treat anyone differently.”
Ram-Leela, by Eros International and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, releases November 15.
