Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has already built a lot of anticipation in the mind and reasonably so! Its been said Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor are on board for the film but no official confirmations has been made yet!
As per sources of a leading daily ‘’ Sanjay’s Padmavati will have a budget almost unheard of in Bollywood. It’s a terribly risky affair because although Bajirao Mastani worked at the box office, Padmavati’s budget is way higher than BM.The sets are huge and the production cost for the film will be in the range of Rs 130-140 crore itself. Add another Rs 20 crore for print and publicity campaigns. Along with this, the leading cast will charge around Rs 30 crore in total. Out of that Rs 30 crore, Deepika will get Rs 12 crore, Ranveer and Shahid are charging around Rs 8 crore each. That makes the budget of Padmavati a staggering Rs 180-190 crore which is mammoth.”
Hmmm…Will the big fat budget work in favor of the film?? What do you think?
