- Shahid has been training for 24 days now
- He plays Raja Ratan Singh in Padmavati
- Shahid co-stars with Deepika and Ranveer in the film
For his role in the film, Shahid has changed his diet plans and is juggling between the training and shooting. "He is on a protein rich diet, which helps in agility. With a deadline looming large, to meet the November release, there isn't enough time to prep before shooting. Shahid has no option but to juggle his shooting and training," the source told mid-day.
The sets of Padmavati have been attacked twice over the past few months. Once, the props and costumes were damaged and 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.
Padmavati will be Shahid Kapoor's second release of the year. He was last seen in Rangoon, co-starring Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan.
