Aditi vouches for it. “I am a really big fan of Ranbir and he has gone completely into the mannerism of the character. In fact, I even met him on set because our shoot locations were in close proximity. I saw Sanju sir as I was shooting with him then I saw Ranbir and thought to myself what is this happening to me, so it was amazing and I think it is going to be epic,” said Aditi, who also plays Sanjay’s on screen daughter in “Bhoomi”.

“I just hope and pray that no difficulties are faced because I really believe that Sanjay Leela Bhansali sir is somebody we should be proud of, and we shouldn’t curb his voice. He is somebody who creates cinematic history and we should be really proud of him and give him a platform to make his films in peace. He makes beautiful films,” she said.
