Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is all set to take off after all the dilly-dallying, The producers have begun work on building a set in Mehboob Studios in Mumbai, even though an official announcement about the cast is still awaited.
“The set is being made for Padmavati. The work started few days ago and it is likely to be completed in another two-three weeks. The shoot is likely to begin from next month so the set is getting ready at the earliest,” revealed a source close to the film. They refused to divulge details of the set saying “it’s too early to say anything.”
The National award-winning director is known to have an eye for elaborate sets for his films.
“The work for Padmavati will begin from here (set at Mehboob studios). We were looking at having a set in Filmcity but it was booked. Later, we might move in there (Filmcity) depending upon the availability,” the sources added.
Huge sets for both Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastanihad were erected at Filmcity in suburban Goregaon, Mumbai.
The film is based on the ruthless ruler Alauddin Khilji’s obsession for Mewar queen Padmavati.
Padmavati, as per reports, will bring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer together again for the third time, with Shahid Kapoor also playing a prominent role in the film. – CINEWS
