The event was organized by IMGC for the promotion of his upcoming film Bajirao Mastani which features Ranveer, Deepika and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles.
Talking about the film,the lead actor mentioned that Bajirao Mastani is an important milestone in his career.
“People will remember my role for a long period of time. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a very committed filmmaker and I learnt a lot from him,” he said while praising the maker of the film.

She also praised the flick and said that the film has been crafted in such a way that the audiences will love every single dialogue. “They will whistle and clap in every scene,” she laughingly said.
Deepika was also asked about her film with Hollywood star Vin Diesel which has been in head lines for a few days, to which she replied that her friends in Hollywood — who have seen the movie’s promo — congratulated her, saying it will be a sure shot hit.
