Padmavati: Bhansali miffed with Ranveer Singh, plans to replace him with another A-lister
It’s been around eight months when Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project ‘Bajirao Mastani’ mesmerised the audience.
Starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in the lead, the movie was indeed a majestic periodical drama and we are still not over with the royal charm it created.
And now once again the ace filmmaker is making to the headlines for his next magnum opus ‘Padmavati’.
So far, it was being reported that Bhansali has roped in his favourite pair Ranveer-Deepika in the movie. It was said that while DP will portray the role of Padmavati, RV will be seen as Alauddin Khilji.
But as per the recent buzz, Bhansali is planning to kick out Ranveer Singh from the movie.
According to the media reports, SLB is quite miffed with the ‘Befikre’ actor and has decided to replace him with another A-lister actor.
“Ranveer made the grave mistake of asking Bhansali for a narration. The director feels that the actor owes him his success, and is not in the position to question his judgement. Like Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t ask for a narration from Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, and Salman with Sooraj Barjatya, SLB felt that the actor should have come on board without hearing the script,” a source reportedly told a leading daily.
On the other hand, reports are rife about Bhansali approaching Hrithik Roshan for ‘Padmavati’. If it works out will, it will be the third periodical drama for Hrithik, who has done “Mohenjo Daro’ and ‘Jodha Akbar’ previously.
We wonder if Deepika Padukone will try clearing the differences between Ranveer-Bhansali or will she too walk out of ‘Padmavati’.
Interestingly, the makers are yet to make the official announcement about the cast of the movie.
