    Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone who have been cast opposite each other for the first time exude brilliant chemistry in Ram Leela. Here's the best ...

For the music launch of Ram-Leela, the makers had planned a grand event featuring the lead cast comprising Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. However, the launch, which was scheduled for today (October 3), had to be cancelled due to Ranveer’s sudden illness.

A source informs,“Ranveer is currently in the hospital, recovering from dengue. It will take a while for him to get well. Sanjay Leela Bhansali (director and producer of the film) had the option of going ahead with the music launch without Ranveer, but he didn’t want to do that. He decided to cancel the event rather than do it half-heartedly.”

Ask Bhansali about this and he says,“I didn’t want to have the music launch without Ranveer. He is Ram and you can’t have a Ram-Leela event without Ram. He has worked very hard on the film and has done a fabulous job. I hope he has a speedy recovery.”

Deepika, who is shooting in Goa for another film, was supposed to fly down to Mumbai especially for the event. Now, sources claim that the music will be released digitally. Last week, Ranveer contracted a severe case of dengue while shooting for Gunday in West Bengal. He has been recuperating at Hinduja Hospital in Khar. According to reports, doctors have said that his condition hasn’t improved a lot since he got admitted. It will take a while to get his platelet count to the required level. Last year, Ranveer had injured his back while shooting for Lootera and was on bed rest for a long period of time.
