Did you know Ranveer and Deepika almost didn't come together for this film? Well, as per reports the first choice for the film was Kareena Kapoor Khan and then the film went to Priyanka Chopra. When both of them were not able to give their nod to the project due to other commitments, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali got in touch with Deepika and there was an instant yes from her. Priyanka, however, later went on to do a dance number in the movie.

The film started at a time when Ranveer and Deepika both were just out of a personal relationship with Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor respectively, and their professional life was also not booming. Bhansali too wasn't on a career high as his last directorial Guzaarish (2010) didn't get good footfalls at the ticket windows.

Ram Leela went on to become a massive success at the box-office. The year 2013 gave a new lease of life to Deepika as it gave her 4 back-to-back Rs 100 Cr films - Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram Leela. Ranveer, whose last two films Lootera and Ladies Vs Ricky Behl hadn't done well at the box-office, came back with a bang after Ram Leela.
