Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s next magnum opus, Padmavati, based on Rani Padmini’s life seems to be facing trouble finding its two male leads. While Deepika Padukone will be playing the female lead, reports suggest Hrithik Roshan may be chosen over Ranveer Singh to play Alauddin Khilji’s character.
But wait, that’s not all! There is a lot of speculation on the actor who will be essaying the role of Deepika’s husband, Rawal Ratan Singh. A lot of A-list actors want to avoid playing a second fiddle to the main lead. Few names like Shahid Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal have cropped, but the final nod has not been given yet.
Rumours suggest that Deepika is rejecting actors she thinks are not fit to play her husband. She also does not want to work with a new actor as she may be required to do intimate scenes. Will Shahid be the chosen one then? Interesting pair, hmmm!
We will keep you updated as this drama unfolds, of course! Meanwhile, tell me what you think about the possible Shahid-Deepika pairing in the comments below.
