From Devdas to Ram-Leela, the director has consistently maintained his decorum in every film.

The filmmaker is the definition of perfection when it comes to making films. And everyone is in awe of his cinema. With every movie, he has something new and spectacular to tell.
Bollywood’s leading director Sanjay Leela Bhansali celebrates his 59th birthday today, on this special occasion let us discuss 5 love stories maestros by the ace filmmaker.
1. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Ajay Devgn starrer film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was a clear-cut winner at the box office at that time. The desired romance space between Aish and Salman crafted by SLB is something we cannot take out of our minds.
One of the classic love stories starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Madhuri Dixit, Devdas is still everyone’s favorite film. Not just the story, from music to the utmost set, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had made sure that everything in the film was in a detailed manner.
Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor’s debut film Saawariya dint worked well at the box office. But the dark love story by SLB is something never to miss on. The film holds so many different variants at a time with a very simple love story that is just mesmerizing.
4. Ram Leela
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer Ram Leela is a perfect film with zero criticism. Everything in the film, the story, cast, music is up to the mark.
5. Bajirao Mastani
Nobody would have portrayed the story of Bajirao Peshwa and his lover Mastani with the same grace and elegance that Bhansali did. Starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, Bajirao Mastani is one of the notable films by Bhansali.
