Sanjay Leela Bansali is a compulsive film-maker. Though Saawaria was a box-office disaster, the film has been appreciated by the critics. He is still well known for his Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Black.
Bansali’s next venture will bring together Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone as lead pair. At the moment Hrithik is busy with his home production Kites being directed by Anurag Basu. After Krish and Jodha Akbar, the handsome actor has regained his superstar status.
Deepika’s debut film Om Shanti Om made her into an instant star. She sailed along with Bachna Ae Hasinao and Chandini Chowk to China. Right now, she is busy with Saif Ali Khan’s untitled project directed by Imtiaz Ali.
Sanjay Leela Bansali will take the Hrithik-Deepika film to the floors sometime in the middle of next year.
