Shahid Kapoor-Deepika Padukone finalise costumes for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Rani Padmavati

Also Ranveer Singh’s part in the film was confirmed recently, so he will be starting his work soon. Since Shahid has become a father just a few days back, he has told Bhansali that he will start the shoot only after two months. Rumours suggest that Shahid plans to spend most of his time with wife and daughter. He will be ready to head to the studios only after the baby turns a month old atleast. The actor will be playing Rani Padmavati’s husband Raja Raval Ratan Singh and his nemesis Alauddin Khilji will be played by Ranveer. If rumours are to be believed, Shahid was also concerned about the length of his role. Since Deepika and Ranveer are real-life couple, the filmmaker was likely to give him a bigger part. But, Bhansali being true to his project paid heed to Shahid’s concern so that his role gets due importance. The movie will soon go on the floor and will be yet another magnum opus just like Bhansali’s previous such as Being a love triangle, and featuring Bhansali’s favourite actors Ranveer and Deepika, Shahid Kapoor asked the director that he also be given equal footing as Ranveer. Bhansali paid heed to Shahid’s concerns by adding a couple of monologues for the actor, making the role meatier. //
