There have been rumours for a while now that Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are playing lead roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Padmavati, but things just got a lot more interesting. According to a recent report in Spotboye, Shahid Kapoor has been approached to play the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh of Mewar, which would make him Deepika’s husband in the film.
No word yet on whether this is true, or – even if it is – if Shahid will agree to do the film, but let’s just say that if it does end up happening, it’ll be all my dreams come true. I’ve been waiting for forever to see Shahid and Deepika in a film together, but throw Ranveer into the mix? Hello, FDFS.
The Internet has clearly been clamouring for the Shahid/Deepika pairing for a while now:
have been inundated with tweets to make a film with shahid and deepika…they are both great! and would love to work with them…
