Mumbai: If she looked gorgeous as a south Indian girl in `Chennai Express`, Deepika Padukone stuns with her latest Gujarati girl avatar in `Ram Leela`. The actress thanks designer Anju Modi because her costumes helped her get into the character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s latest directorial venture.

"Anju has done a fabulous job considering this is her first feature film...I felt in the character the minute I wore the clothes. I felt like Leela," said the actress here in an interview.

"I think that is the most important aspect when a designer comes on board. It`s so important to allow the actor to feel like the character," added the actress who also appreciated Modi`s understanding of colours and cuts.

Set in the backdrop of Gujarat, the film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare`s epic love story "Romeo and Juliet", which will see Deepika romancing Ranveer Singh when the film comes out Nov 29.
