The news is already buzzing in the air that Shahid Kapoor may get the role of Deepika Padukone’s husband in Padmavati. Seemingly, the actor has asked his role to be reviewed again. Consequently, Ranveer Singh has overcame by apprehensions and asked his own role to be revised.
As per the reports of a source, “Ranveer’s role in the film is a negative, but powerful one. SLB has given him some superb dialogues and scenes. But the comfort level between the actor and directory changed when Shahid Kapoor came on board as the Rana of Mewar, Raja Rawal Singh, who is also Padmavati’s (Deepika Padukone) husband in the film. Shahid agreed once his role in became well-defined and he and Ranveer were on an equal footing. To be fair, Ranveer has every right to ask to see the script when there is another hero in the film. Especially because this is the first time he plays a negative character, which goes against his good boy image, while Shahid plays a dashing Indian Raja. Ranveer’s insecurity stemmed from there, and he asked for a narration before he started shooting for the film.”
The daily also reports the words of an insider, “SLB will give him his joint narration with Shahid, if Ranveer so desires, just like he got one for Gunday with Arjun Kapoor. Some of Ranveer’s contemporaries have had bad experiences in two-hero projects, so he is being extra careful. It is better to be safe than sorry.”
