Will Shahid Kapoor romance Deepika Padukone in Padmavati?

Updated: Jul 20, 2016 11:54 IST

New Delhi, July 20 (ANI): Rumours are doing the rounds that actor Shahid Kapoor has been reportedly roped in to play Deepika Padukone's on screen husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming classic tale 'Padmavati.'

SpotBoye quoted a source, as saying, "Bhansali wants Shahid to play the Chittor King who is married to Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh."

Needless to say if Shahid, 35, accepts the role, 'Padmavati' would mark his first collaboration with Bhansali and also with Ranveer Singh and Deepika.

However, earlier it was reported that initially a television actor was signed to play Deepika's husband in the film, but the actress didn't approve of it.

Reportedly, the 'Piku' actress and Ranveer would not be seen sharing any scenes together in the film. Deepika would be sharing some intimate scenes with her husband in the movie, and therefore, wants a bigger star to play her on-screen husband.

Prakash Kapadia, who earlier scripted 'Bajirao Mastani', has reportedly been roped in to write ' Padmavati', which would see Ranveer playing the obsessed Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

The shooting of the movie is likely to go on the floors in September. (ANI)
