Mumbai, March 20 -- Film-makers try hard to keep the look of the characters and shoots of their upcoming movies under wraps.
But thanks to smartphones and social media, sometimes images get leaked. The recent one was of an actor on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next, Bajirao Mastani, which went viral on Twitter.
As the photograph looked quite similar to that of lead actor Ranveer Singh, speculation about the man being Ranveer's body double spread as well.
But sources from the unit deny the rumours saying that the person in the photos is a character actor in the film, as Ranveer is not shooting since February-end when he injured his hand.
"Ranveer has been performing the stunts for the film himself, and last month, he fell while shooting a scene. He is now recuperating, with his hand in a sling. The makers are currently shooting with other actors. As the character actor's look resembled Ranveer's, it led to rumours of him being a body double. But in reality, the actor in the photos is from the supporting cast," says a source from the production house. The photos were clicked by onlookers when the unit was shooting in Amer Fort in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
While Bhansali was unavailable for a comment, the spokesperson of the film confirmed the news.
