Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have started the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical period drama Padmavati. Interestingly, this is the first time when Deepika and Ranveer won’t romance each other on the big screen and we will get to see a fresh pairing. Shahid has been paired opposite Deepika who will essay the role of Queen Padmavati.

However, Ranveer Singh will definitely try to woo the heart of queen Padmavati in the film. Ranveer Singh will essay the role of Sultan Alauddin Khilji who has his eyes for Queen Padmavati whereas Shahid Kapoor will play her husband Raja Ratan Rawal Singh. While the director is making sure that not much is going out in the media, Deepika Padukone gave an insight about the film.

She took to her Instagram account and shared the draft of her upcoming film Padmavati. Along with the picture, she captioned the image as, “3 Years of Raam Leela”.

Interestingly, this is the third time Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are working with the ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Raam Leela and Bajirao Mastani both won several accolades and received critical appreciation from the fans and critics alike. Only time will tell whether Padmavati will mark the hat trick for the trio (Ranveer, Deepika and Bhansali).

We believe that her queen avatar for the film will be captivating! The movie is one of the most awaited films. Slated for a 2017 release, Padmavati has grabbed headlines since its inception. We all know how Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for his films and larger than life sets. He is keeping everything well guarded be it the sets to the lead cast’s look. The director does not want to give away with much of the plot of the film. The film is slated for a next year’s release.
