Incidentally, Shreya Ghoshal also completed 14 years in Bollywood today!
Sanjay Leela Bhansali began to compose for his won films, starting off with Hrithik Roshan’s Guzaarish, which got him a lot of accolades for his subtle melodies. Fuelled by this encouragement, he continued composing for his later films, Goliyon Ki Raasleela…Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. both incidentally starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Bajirao Mastani also got him a lot of nominations as Best Composer as well at various award functions, though he mostly went away with the Best Film and Best Director awards
Padmavati is a historical film based on the life of Queen Padmavati and how she became the doomed obsession of Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
