Noted actor Deepti Naval says she is a great fan of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and wanted to be part of his last directorial venture Guzaarish.

“I love the kind of films Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes. I don’t know about the public and the industry but I am an all-time Sanjay Leela
Bhansali fan. His cinema is completely stylised and commercial and yet hugely experimental. I love his cinema,” Deepti said. Bhansali, the maker of movies like Khamoshi, Devdas and Black, has dealt with intense subjects in his films. His last release, Guzaarish, explored the life of a paraplegic and dealt with the serious issue of euthanasia.
On which of Bhansali’s films she wished to be a part of, Deepti said, “I would have loved to be a part of Guzaarish.”
Meanwhile, the actor is excited to team up with actor Farooq Sheikh for an upcoming film titled Listen Amaya.“I was excited about working with Farooq again as we have done some memorable films together like Chashme Baddoor, Katha, Saath Saath, Rang Birangi, Ek Baar Chale Aao and Kisi Se Na Kehna. In this film it was great working with him after such a long time,” she said.
