Mumbai: Deepika Padukone says she did not prepare much for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film 'Ram-Leela' and was ready to be moulded by the director.

"I think my biggest learning on this film was to not prepare, because that's his (Bhansali) way of filmmaking. It's easier if you go as a blank slate and allow him to mould you. I don't over prepare for scenes anyway. I always feel like a large part of it should be spontaneous. But you have to prepare a little. After 2-3 days I realised it (preparation) won't work with him," Deepika said.

"Everyday is a new day when you are working with him and I think that nervousness has made me understand my craft a lot more," she said.

In the film, Deepika is paired opposite Ranveer Singh and their on-screen chemistry has caught everyone's attention.

"He has a lot of energy. He has done a lot of research for the film and he's an extremely helpful co-star. It's been wonderful working with him and I think he is one of the finest actors of our generation," she said.

In 'Ram-Leela', Deepika is a Gujarati girl while in her last film 'Chennai Express' she played a Tamilian girl.

"There was a point where I was shooting both these films at the same time. I haven't done a film ('Ram-Leela') which is so rustic and earthy," she said.

Deepika also rubbished rumours of a body double being used for her in “Nagada sang dhol” song.

"Who is spreading these rumours? You want to see the sores of my feet? How badly the skin has come off? I've worked very hard, don't take away the credit," she said.
