New Delhi: Maverick filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's yet another period drama 'Padmavati' has been hogging all the limelight from day one. The movie in all probabilities will see a reunion of the super successful trio of Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and director SLB.
Earlier, this trio has worked in successful ventures such as 'Ram-Leela' and 'Bajirao Mastani'. The buzz is also strong that actor Shahid Kapoor might be roped in to play an important role in the film as well.
PTI quoted sources as saying, "Deepika is doing the film. Ranveer in all probability is also going to be part of the film."
Meanwhile, quirky star Ranveer has refrained from talking about the film. Sources close to him have also neither confirmed nor denied the news of him doing the much talked about film.
The period drama is the epic saga of Rani Padmavati and Deepika will be seen in the titular role. Ranveer is likely to enact the role of Alauddin Khilji.
When asked if Shahid would be a part of the film, a source close to the "Udta Punjab" actor only said that "he is rumoured to be cast".
There are speculation that Shahid will play the role of Deepika's husband. Earlier, names of actors like Vicky Kaushal and Fawad Khan had also cropped up for the role.
According to reports, the film will trace the journey of a loyal and beautiful queen who decided to end her life after her husband Ratan Singh got defeated in a war waged by Alauddin Khilji over his obsession to gain the love of Rani Padmavati.
The film will go on floors next month and is set to release next year.
