Deepika-Ranveer reunites in Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’


Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh may reunite again in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. Now, news reports state that Deepika Padukone will also play Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Rani Padmini, in his next film, Padmavati.


After the success of Ram Leela – Goliyon Ki Raasleela and Bajirao Mastani, the upcoming project, which is supposedly based on tyrant emperor Alauddin Khilji’s obsession for Padmavati, the queen of Chittor, will mark the third collaboration of Sanjay-Deepika and Ranveer.

However, Deepika merely confirmed that she will begin shooting her next Hindi film in September this year, without naming the movie. The actress has wrapped up the shoot of her Hollywood project with action star Vin Diesel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.


Prakash Kapadia, who earlier scripted Bajirao Mastani, has reportedly been roped in to write Padmavati. Details of the project have been kept tightly under wraps. Even Deepika’s casting was inadvertently revealed by Shreyas Puranik, the music composer Bhansali has signed on for the project, on Twitter,  which was later deleted.

If the casting is finalised, Ranveer will play Allaudin Khilji to Deepika’s Rani Padmini. Masaan actor Vicky Kaushal is pegged to play Padmini’s husband, Rana Ratan Singh.

The shoot of Padmavati is expected to begin in September.
