Bollywood Featured What's Happenin'

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh to star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati?

Whenever Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes a movie, he makes one grand-scale movie (go big or go home, right?)!  His next magnum opus is Padmavati that is supposed to go under production in September.  The fact that Padmavati is going to be his next film is confirmed, but what isn’t completely confirmed yet is who will play his leads!  A few days back, musician Shreyas Puranik apparently had leaked the news on his Twitter account and claimed Deepika Padukone was to star as the female lead in the film. However, he later deleted his tweet.  Now, rumors are also circulating that Ranveer Singh is going to co-star in the film!  If this is the cast Bhansali will be sticking with, then we will get to see our favorite Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani jodi together again in another Sanjay Leela Bhansali epic!  If this turns out to be 100% true, then Ranveer will play Allaudin Khilji and Deepika will play Rani Padmini.

The one thing we do know that is 100% confirmed is that work is already under way for the film – at least in terms of the music!  Shreya Ghoshal who debuted as a singer in Bollywood with Bhansali’s Devdas (“Baire Piya”) tweeted saying “What outstanding compositions Sanjay Bhansali sir has made for#Padmavati. Sang with all heart!”  At least we know that the music is on par with his prior films!

We can’t wait to find out what will happen with the casting for this film!
