Shahid Kapoor is all set to share the screen space with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for the first time, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. The actor is said to be essaying the role of Raja Ratan Singh, the Rajput ruler and husband of queen Padmavati (Deepika), in the period drama whereas Ranveer will be playing Alauddin Khilji, the medieval-era Delhi sultan, who falls in love with Padmavati.
At a recent event, Shahid revealed that he will start shooting for the movie in a couple of weeks. The Rangoon actor was quoted saying, “I will start shooting for ‘Padmavati’ in a couple of weeks. I haven’t started it yet, but it is an amazing honour to work with Bhansali ji. I love his films, I think he is a fantastic filmmaker. I am very excited about the role he has offered me. This is the first time that Deepika and I will be working together which is great. This is the first time me and Ranveer will be working together, which is great.
He further added, “Padmavati is a really big film. It is a challenging film to do as an actor. After working with Vishal Bharadwaj, working with Bhansali is an amazing place to be. I feel very fortunate.”
On the other hand, Deepika too says that Padmavati is going to be an extremely difficult film for her to do.
A couple of days ago, Ranveer had given us a glimpse of his look from this film.
