Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone worked in three films – Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat – and all three of them went on to emerge massive hits.

"Sanjay Leela Bhansali offered Deepika a dance number in Gangubai Kathiawadi, however, the actress denied the offer. The filmmaker later on went ahead to offer her the option of being in a key role in Heera Mandi, or a dance number in the web show, however, Deepika refused to be a part of it," the little birdie shared told Bollywood Hungama.
