Deepika Padukone is busy with her Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Padmavati. The sizzling beauty of Bollywood plays Rani Padmavati in this much awaited film. It also features Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
As per the latest buzz, many top male stars were approached for the role opposite Deepika, but they refused. The reason being that they felt the title was too female-oriented.
However, journalist Rajeev Masand spilled beans on the same and said,
Bhansali stuck with his leading lady even after top male stars offered to star in it if the director was willing to change the title to sound less like it revolved around the heroine. Deepika is returning the favour by standing firmly by Bhansali’s side, focusing solely on Padmavati, even as her co-actors Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor are dividing their time between Bhansali’s set and ad-films, appearances, and the like.
