Mumbai, July 2 -- Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is busy filming Bajirao Mastani, hosted an iftar party for his cast and crew on Tuesday (June 30).
The director organised the gathering on the sets of his period film, which stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
An insider says, "Bhansali sir and his team are working round-the-clock to finish the shooting of the film. As the shoots go on till late at night, he felt that he should treat his team to some delicious food."
The insider adds that, initially, Bhansali had planned to host the party next week. But later, he changed his mind.
The source further says, "He felt it was the right day to organise a party, as his entire crew was present on the sets. Since the roza ends at sunset, the team, including Deepika, took a break, and sat together for iftar. Bhansali sir arranged for biryani, kebabs and other such delicacies. Kathak maestro Pt Birju Maharaj was also present."
