Filmmaker Sanjay Bhansali had to face one problem besides the attack by fringe elements throughout the making of ‘Padmaavat’, was how to make Shahid Kapoor look as tall, if not taller, than his leading lady Deepika Padukone.
A source says, “It was an ongoing problem during the shooting. Shahid was playing the king and Deepika was playing the queen. He couldn’t possibly look shorter than her on screen. It would have gone against royal protocol. Bhansali and the unit had to constantly fudge Shahid’s height to make him look as tall.”
And now Vijay Krishna Acharya’s ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ are facing the same problem with their leading man Aamir Khan.
Sources says, “Katrina is way too tall for Aamir’s height. There is a constant stress on the sets to ensure they look equally matched on screen.”–CINEWS
