Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (transl. A Dance of Bullets: Ram-Leela) or simply known as Ram-Leela, is a 2013 Indian Hindi-language tragic romance film written and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who also composed its original soundtrack. The film was jointly produced by Bhansali and Eros International's Kishore Lulla; it stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The supporting cast includes Supriya Pathak, Richa Chadda, Sharad Kelkar, Gulshan Devaiah, Barkha Bisht Sengupta, and Abhimanyu Singh. Priyanka Chopra made a cameo appearance in the song "Ram Chahe Leela". Bhansali conceived Ram-Leela while working on his directional debut Khamoshi: The Musical; an insufficient budget led to the project being postponed. After reviving the project in 2012, Padukone and Singh were cast in the lead roles over many other choices. Principal photography began in Gujarat before moving to Rajasthan. Much of the filming was done on sets, despite previous plans against doing so. The background score was composed by Monty Sharma, while the lyrics were written by Siddharth–Garima. The film's release, scheduled on 15 November 2013, was stayed by Delhi High Court. The film initially titled Ram-Leela was changed to Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela in response to an order by the court, allowing it to release on the scheduled date. It received positive reviews, with praise directed to the performances of the cast members, particularly Singh and Padukone. Criticism was focused on its plot and elements of violence. Ram-Leela earned ₹220 crore in its theatrical run and emerged as the fifth highest-grossing Indian film of 2013 as well as one of the highest-grossing Indian films. Ram-Leela received eight nominations at the Filmfare Awards, winning three including Best Actress for Padukone and best supporting actress for Supriya Pathak. At the International Indian Film Academy Awards, it received nine nominations, including for Best Film, and won two.
