Shahid and Bhansali were doing secret meetings behind closed doors. Only recently, he was spotted outside Bhansali’s office. This ticked off the other hero in the film Ranveer Singh who didn’t like this hush hush meetings. He was upset with his fav director for going behind his back and bending backwards to accommodate the Shaandaar actor. Bhansali even promised him a muscular role despite knowing that according to the lore Allauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer, was a superior warrior than Raja Ratan Singh, played by Shahid.
The surprise package of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project `Padmavati’ definitely is Shahid Kapur in the role of Allauddin Khilji. Kapoor seems to know that too and wants to make the most of this love triangle. We hear this was his precondition for accepting the role, that it would be a triangle and he would have screen space equal to Sanjay Leela Bhansali favourite Ranveer Singh’s. Bhansali has rewritten portions of the film with Kapur in mind, and has brought in long monologues befitting his histrionic strengths. We surely don’t jealousy Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati who will be forced to choose between these two.
