New Delhi: A lot has been published about the casting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming classic tale 'Padmavati' in last few days. But, the audience still doesn't have a clear picture about the star-cast of this flick. Latest reports claim that Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is being considered to play the character of Deepika Padukone's reel hubby Raja Rawal Ratan Singh of Mewar in this movie.
"Bhansali wants Shahid to play the Chittor King who is married to Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh," SpotBoye quoted a source as saying.
If everything works out, this will be Shahid's first film with SLB.
Interestingly, 'Padmavati' also features Deepika's alleged boyfriend Ranveer Singh as the obsessive Sultan Alauddin Khilji. However, the 'Bajirao Mastani' duo are not likely to share any scenes together.
