Mumbai: Actress Richa Chadda, who would be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s much-talked about film `Ram Leela`, was initially sceptical about doing it as she had not read the script.

"Initially, I was not sure about doing `Ram Leela` as I had not read the script. I did not get to read the script till one month of filming. As he (Bhansali) is guarded about what he makes. I still can`t talk about it," she said.

"I think it is every actor`s dream to work with him. He creates his own world, where people like it or not," the `Gangs of Wasseypur` actress said.

Directed by Bhansali, `Ram Leela` is a romance-drama which features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the lead. The film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare`s epic play `Romeo Juliet`.

"Bhansali is a tough task master. He will grill you...He will make you give your best. He will not leave you. I am having fun. I am challenged every day. Now that I have an award (Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress in `Wasseypur`) behind me people expect me to do best."

Richa refrained from divulging anything about the film, citing non-disclosure agreement, but insisted that she is playing a "significant" role.

"I have signed the film knowing Ranveer and Deepika are the main characters. I did see something in this film and hence signed it," the 24-year-old said.

`Ram Leela`, which also features Abhimanyu Shekhar Singh, Shweta Salve, Barkha Bisht Sengupta, is schedule to release on November 29.
