Finally, a sigh of relief for Sanjay Leela Bhansali putting Padmavati’s ego clashes to rest!
Bhansali’s Padmavati’s will start shooting soon and the first sequence will be a song shoot featuring Deepika Padukone. The actress will be performing a Rajasthani folk dance.
About a month ago an Indian web sight said the director had started shooting the song sequences with hundreds of dancers flown in from Rajasthan.
A set has been constructed at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai, similar to that of Padmavati’s Water Palace in Rajasthani’s Chittorgarh Fort.
The dance sequence doesn’t require Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
We hope the two heartthrobes’ fight for equal percentage of screen time has been resolved by now!
The epic stars Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in leading roles.
“Deepika has already done a look test for the film and Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor will be doing the same in a couple of days, separately. Both have been growing their beards and hair to play their respective characters — Shahid as the Rajput king Rana Ratan Singh of Chittor and Ranveer as the Sultan of Delhi, Alauddin Khilji,” a source said.
As we know all the steamy scenes will be between Deepika and Ranveer.
“The dance sequence will be shot on a set constructed at Mehboob Studio. Shahid and Ranveer are not needed next week as they are not part of the song,” a source added.
Padmavati will see Deepika portraying the character of the queen of Chittor Rani Padmavati.
