Rumours have been in for a while that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are playing lead roles of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. But, here is the twist to the rumours that an expected Jodi of Ranveer-Deepika gets a question mark and Shahid is roped to play husband of Deepika Padukone as Raja Rawal Ratan Singh.
As per the revealed story, Bhansali is seeing Shahid as the king of Chittor who will be married to Rani Padmini meaning Deepika Padukone. Reportedly, Deepika and Ranveer will not be sharing any scenes in the film but this “Piku” actress will definitely share on-screen chemistry with her husband in the movie.
Well, if this role is accepted by Shahid which would be, then Film Padmavati is going to be third collaboration of Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Also, Shahid will be seen for first time in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s banner.
The movie shooting is likely to run on floors in September.
