Mumbai: And finally, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have managed to meet. With Sanjay Leela Bhansali deposing before the parliamentary committee that is probing into the Padmavati controversy, Deepika and Ranveer took time to meet up at Ranveer’s Gully Boy director Zoya Akhtar’s house. The promotions of the film demanded that Ranveer and Deepika do not come together, because it does not have any scene of Allaudin Khilji and Rani Padmavati together.
“But then they made a combined entry and exit this time. Ranveer was very upset and angry at the threats made not just to Deepika, but also to Bhansali. He even had a restrain order on meeting Deepika. But how can you keep them away for long?” asks a trade source. With the probability of Bhansali being called again within a fortnight to meet the parliamentary committee, it does seem that the focus now is on the Gujarat elections. Buzz is that a decision on the Padmavati release will be made only after that.
