After months of shooting, rigorous preparation and a string of obstacles and disruptions caused by some fringe religious groups, scintillating Deepika Padukone has successfully completed the shoot of Padmavati, one of her most challenging films so far.
Though the actress has completed the shooting for her portion in the magnum opus, she has reportedly reserved a couple of days for any patchwork if required. If director Sanjay Leela Bhansali feels like shooting for some patchwork, he will most probably do it after finishing shooting with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The film is expected to be completed soon and then it will go into post production stage.
Deepika Padukone will be seen essaying the titular role of Rani Padmavati in the period drama, while Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh play the roles of Rana Rawal Ratan Singh and Alauddin Khilji respectively. Reportedly, Padukone is being paid more than the male stars in the movie.
Padmavati marks the third collaboration among Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Kapoor and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. They have previously collaborated on films like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
Earlier scheduled to release on 17th November 2017, Padmavati has now been pushed to April 2018. The film is being produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
