Padmavati is one of the most awaited projects. The casting of the film is still going on. We already know that Deepika is playing the female lead but as per the latest reports Shahid Kapoor has been approached to play Deepika Padukone’s on screen husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.

A source says, “Bhansali wants Shahid to play the Chittor King who is married to Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh.” This will 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, Deepika 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. The shooting of the movie is likely to go on the floors in September.
