Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and 'Bajirao Mastani' director Sanjay Leela Bhansali reportedly got emotional and teary-eyed at the film's trailer launch, which was held recently in Mumbai.

"I am overwhelmed...its not a movie it's an experience. I might breakdown. It's an amazing feeling. We have given our sweat, blood, tears, passion...lot of hard work," Deepika said at the trailer launch here tonight.

"While we were doing `Ram Leela,' we felt it is a big film. It was so difficult. `Ram Leela' was a rehearsal....prep (preparation) for us," she said, referring to the 2013 film, also directed by Bhansali, that featured her and Ranveer.

Bhansali came on the stage and hugged the 29-year-old actress and the two looked emotional.
"I am in a confused state's an emotional moment. It's a film made out of passion...lot of talented people are part of it. There is a feeling of emptiness, sadness for 12 years we were working on it," Bhansali said.
