Actor Deepika Padukone visited director Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Wednesday evening. The paparazzi clicked the actor outside the filmmaker’s office in Juhu on February 26 as she waved and posed for the cameras while sitting inside her car. The photos of Deepika visiting one of her favourite directors have fuelled the rumours of her new film with Bhansali. The director’s fondness for Deepika is not unknown and she considers him as her mentor. Bhansali has got a great contribution in providing Deepika with the right opportunities at the right time to make way for her much-deserving successful career in the movies. Now, with Deepika making a professional visit to his office definitely hints at her teaming up with the director for a new film. And if the rumours are to be believed, this new project is none other than Baiju Bawra which has already been announced by the director under his home banner SLB Productions.
