Have Aishwarya Rai and Rani Mukerji Lost Their Magic for Sanjay Leela Bhansali?
They were supposed to be his favourites in their time...
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for artfully transforming his leading ladies into ethereal creatures on screen, with a promise of a dream. Their grace and poise makes them the cynosure in all his movies, as he delicately works his magic. From Aishwarya Rai to Rani Mukerji and now to Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, Bhansali has given his best to each of these actresses and in turn they have truly blossomed. The director is also known to repeat his actresses and in an article in DNA he had mentioned that Aishwarya and Rani were his favourite people to work with. But in an unexpected comment did the director make a passing mention of something about disappearing magic? We wonder whom he was referring to!
Sanjay says, “I feel that I should work with them but I also feel that some magic has to remain — what it was — you can’t recreate that. Rani and Aishwarya are very special. A lot of people feel I am rude, arrogant, disinterested, but I love all the people I have worked with, be it Rani who loves me, and Aishwarya who I never need to say a word to and she’s there for me, with Salman I had that, but Salman is still upset about a few things — I don’t know what — but those moments are special. Now Ranveer has come into that space for me.”
Lucky Ranveer, we say!
