New Delhi, July 19 (ANI): Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' is set to roll this September with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in titular roles. Reports suggest that actor Vicky Kaushal would play the part of Rani Padmavati's husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh.

However, the 29-year-old 'Mastani' actress has reportedly put her foot down after the news broke.

As per the script of this period film, Padmavati shares some intense romantic and lovemaking scenes with her husband and Deepika wants a big star as her hero, reports

"A random actor won't do for her. While she has no scenes with Ranveer, the role of Rawal Singh (her husband) has to be at par. Otherwise, the story won't work," the report further said.

The actress apparently has no steamy scenes with alleged beau Ranveer Singh, who will play Sultan Alauddin Khilji - an obsessed lover. Rumours are rife that the duo would not even share screen space in Bhansali's ambitious movie. (ANI)
