Just a few days ago it was reported that Ranveer Singh demanded a narration of the Padmavati script after Shahid Kapoor came on board. This was a shock for Sanjay Leela Bhansali as he is good friends with the Befikre actor. Ranveer blindly trusts him when it comes to giving him importance in films, the classic example being Goliyon Ki Rasleea- Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. But now it appears that the rapport between SLB and RS has changed ever since Shahid was confirmed to play Deepika Padukone’s husband in Padmavati.
A source was quoted saying, “Ranveer’s role in the film is a negative, but powerful one. SLB has given him some superb dialogues and scenes. But the comfort level between the actor and director changed when Shahid Kapoor came on board as the Rana of Mewar, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, who is also Padmavati’s (Deepika Padukone) husband in the film”.
And now the latest buzz is that RS is planning to ditch the film and choose friend Zoya Akhtar’s next which is indeed surprising. As per reports in a leading tabloid, Ranveer prefers Zoya’s film over Padmavati. Also if all these rumours were not enough, the latest speculations are making the rounds that Hrithik Roshan has been approached to replace RS in the film.
Now we don’t know who is finally playing the role of Allauddin Khilji, but these creative differences are surely affecting SLB and Ranveer’s friendship. What do you think about this development?
