Padmavati has been grabbing headlines for its star cast for a while now. For the longest time Sanjay Leela Bhansali hadn’t zeroed down on the leads of the film and when he did, reports started doing the rounds that there was tension among Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh – the film’s leads.
Shahid Kapoor at a recent event finally broke his silence on the brouhaha surrounding the film. He said:
This is the stuff I have been reading in papers and I find it absurd when people say it is ‘two hero’ film. Even Udta Punjab had two heroes and two heroines. This film has three principle characters. To say it’s a two hero project is just a way of creating some kind of material which is exciting at a very frivolous level. It’s a great opportunity for all three of us. It’s a great role for Deepika, it’s a fantastic role for Ranveer and great role for me. I am so happy that the film has been cast the way it has and it is getting made. I hope we come out with a great cinematic experience for the audience because that is what all of us want.
