As everyone knows that Ranveer and Deepika are playing the main leads in this film together for the third time After Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela (2013) and Bajirao Mastanai (2015).
Shahid will be seen playing role of Deepika’s on screen husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. According to reports, “Bhansali wants Shahid to play the Chittor King who is married to Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh.” Whereas Deepika will be playing Rani Padmavati and Ranveer is doing Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khijli, an obsessed lover in the movie.
At the first place Masan actor Vicky Kaushal was approached for the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh but Deepika didn’t approved of it as there are going to be some intimate scenes of Padmavati and her husband.
The shooting of Padmavati will go on the floors by September this year.
