The dates for the much-awaited film of the year, Padmavati, has been set finally. Makers have been waiting for so long to finish the movie in time and with disruption in schedules thanks to protests and on-set mishaps, there have been talks that Padmavati will not meet its initial release date. This period- romance stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles and will now go on the floors on November 17. This period movie is directed by Bollywood’s renowned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actors Jim Sarbh and Aditi Rao Hydari also play important roles in the movie.
To ensure the film’s look great, Bhansali wanted an extended six month period for the movie release but now it seems everything has fallen into the place. This will be the first time Ranveer Singh will be playing a negative role since his first movie ‘Band Baaja Baarat’. Rani Padmini is played by Deepika Padukone, while Shahid Kapoor is playing her husband Raja Rattan Singh, the king of Mewar. This is the first time that Shahid and Deepika are being paired in a movie and it’s definitely going to be interesting to watch them sharing a screen.
Shahid Kapoor who plays Padmavati’s husband and the Maharaja of Mewar is filming high-octane war scenes at the moment. On the same lines, Deepika Padukone is expected to wrap up her shoot by August as the film inches towards wrap by October-end. Ranveer Singh’s look is highly guarded against the movie and has completed his parts already for this upcoming Hindi movie.
The movie was much hype due to its controversial topic and when the first schedule in Jaipur was abruptly cut short by members of Rajput Karni Sena. They protested over the assumption that the film includes intimate scenes between Khilji and Padmavati, and attacked the set at Jaigarh Fort, including the director. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and expect the movie to go on the floors soon and amaze us with some great history and lit up chemistry among the leading stars.
