Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone is happy that her on-screen chemistry with Ranveer Singh is appreciated by audience but she wants that whenever they come together next for a film it has to be better than `Ram Leela`.

After the success of `Ram Leela`, Ranveer and Deepika have become the most sought after pair in Bollywood.

"I think the chemistry that Ranveer and I shared in the film really clicked. I think chemistry is something which two actors bring to the character.

"We both were lucky that we got to be a part of a strong love story that had strong characters and director like Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I hope whatever film Ranveer and I do next is as good as or even better than `Ram Leela`," Deepika said.

When asked if she is excited to team up with Ranveer again for Bhansali`s much-talked project `Bajirao Mastani`, the actress said, "We are still working out the logistics. The only film that I can talk about is Imtiaz Ali`s next with Ranbir Kapoor. We start shooting for it in July. Besides this there are a couple of films that are in the pipeline but nothing has been finalised."

Baji Rao was a noted general, who served as Peshwa (prime minister) to the fourth Maratha Chhatrapati (emperor) Shahu from 1720. He is credited with expanding the Maratha empire.

For almost 15 years, Bhansali has been planning to make a film on Peshwa Bajirao and his ladylove Mastani. He had conceptualised the project with his `Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam` star cast Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. But as their relationship went kaput, Bhansali was since then waiting to get a proper star cast in place.
