Gulshan Devaiah to play antagonist in `Ramleela`

New Delhi: Actor Gulshan Devaiah, who played negative roles in films like ‘Shaitan’ and ‘Hate Story’, will once again play the role of antagonist in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s ‘Ramleela’.

Gulshan essays the character of ‘Bhavani` in the movie that also features Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in lead roles.

"Bhavani is a prominent member of the Jadeja clan who are of Chandrivanshi Rajput descent living in modern day Kutch Gujarat. The exact attributes of the character and his contribution to the plot is something I cannot divulge in but let`s just say he has enough shades of grey and is nothing like I have done this far in my career," the actor said in a statement.

He is also excited about working with Bhansali and added: "I am very excited to be a part of the film as I have grown up watching Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s films and I am overwhelmed by the greatness of the man."

The movie is slated to release Nov 15.
