Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is already in the news for its cast and also the cold vibes between Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Recently, Shahid shared his disappointment when Padmavati is called a two hero film.
When asked about the film at Jio Mami Festival, Shahid said, “This is the stuff I have been reading in papers and I find it absurd when they say it is a ‘two hero’ film. The film has three principle characters. These are just ways of creating some kind of material which is exciting at some frivolous level.”
The Udta Punjab star added, “It’s a great opportunity for all three of us. It’s a great role for Deepika, a fantastic role for Ranveer and great one for me. I am happy that the film has been cast the way it has and it is getting made. I hope we come out with a great cinematic experience for the audience.”
Shahid plays the role of Raja Ratan Singh, husband of Padmavati, played by Deepika Padukone. Ranveer Singh plays the role of Alauddin Khilji, who falls in love with Padmavati. The film is said to be one of the costliest of Bollywood. It is slated to release on 17th November, 2017.
Talking about his excitement for working with Bhansali, Shahid said, “I wish Padmavati came to me five-six years ago, I would have done it. I am happy it is coming to me today, I am happy that I am working with a filmmaker like Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When I saw Bajirao Mastani, I went berserk because I absolutely loved it.”
