Pinkvilla: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been riddled with delays due to disruption of the sets and costumes that took place this year because of protesters who felt that Bhansali was distorting history. Despite the protests, Sanjay’s main aim is to finish the movie on time so that it releases on the scheduled date.
According to a leading daily, Sanjay had briefed Ranveer and Deepika to be discreet and careful during the shoot of the movie. A source close to the development revealed to the daily that even though he does not care about the fact that Ranveer and Deepika are dating in real life, he didn’t want pictures of the couple to come out as that could harm his movie. DeepVeer will not be sharing a single frame together on screen.
Recently, a viral picture of Ranveer and Deepika kissing broke the Internet and looks like Bhansali is not elated about the same. Another source stated, “At a time when the film’s anxious producers, Viacom 18 Motion Picture, and director Sanjay want to ensure those protesting against the film that the two have no scenes together, a picture of them getting cozy in public is eminently avoidable, to say the least.”
Padmavati also stars Shahid Kapoor and is slated to release on November 17, 2017. Deepika plays the titular character of Rani Padmini and her husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh is portrayed by Shahid. Ranveer, on the other hand, will be the main antagonist Alauddin Khilji who is obsessed with Rani Padmini.
