MUMBAI: MAX, the premium Hindi movies and special events channel brings to you the MAX Television Premier of the romantic drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘GOLIYON KI RAASEELA - RAM-LEELA ’ on Sunday, 16th March at 9PM only on MAX.
The film is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, set in violent times. In a Gujarati village, Ranjaar, infamous for its unrestricted manufacture and sale of arms and ammunition, two clans, Rajari and Sanera, have been at loggerheads with each other for over 500 years. The film opens with a violent dispute between the two over petty matters. Despite various tussles between the heads of the families, Ram (Ranveer Singh), boldly enters the house of the Saneras during the festival of Holi and frolics with Leela (Deepika Padukone) which marks the start of the love affair between the two.
Speaking about his experience of getting into shape for his entry song experience, Ranveer Singh states, “For my entry song – Ram Ji ke chal dekho, I followed probably the most intense training program I have ever been through to get into the shape that I had to for the song. It was well worth it now that I see it on screen. I am really happy that I look like that at least once in my life and it has been captured in celluloid.”
Recalling the experience of shooting the songs of the film, Deepika Padukone says, “Nagada Sang Dhol has been tough, probably the most difficult songs I have ever done. The song Ang Laga De is a very new sounding song, Lahu Munh Lag Gaya- was young and passionate. I had to completely let go and the only workout I had, was to carry the lehenga’s.”
Watch an action packed feisty love drama during the MAX Television Premiere of GOLIYON KI RAASEELA RAM-LEELA on Sunday, 16th March, 2014 at 9 P.M.
