- Ranveer's portions as young Alauddin Khilji, have to be shot
- The release date was later shifted to November
- The shooting of Padmavati was delayed twice
The shooting of Padmavati was delayed twice, after the sets were attacked and disrupted. Once, the props and costumes were damaged and the set was torched and earlier this year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was assaulted by a Rajput group called Karni Sena while filming Padmavati at Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur.
DNA report also states that though major portions of Padmavati has been shot, the post-production work will take time and hence, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has decided to shift the release date.
In Padmavati, Deepika Padukone stars as Rani Padmini, wife of Raja Ratan Singh, played by Shahid Kapoor while Ranveer Singh features as Alauddin Khilji, one of the most powerful rulers of the Khilji dynasty.
Padmavti is Ranveer and Deepika's third film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The trio have previously collaborated for blockbusters like Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
