- Padmavati is Ranveer and Depika's third film with Bhansali
- Padmavati also stars Shahid Kapoor
In case you have missed, more glimpses from the film's shoot have recently been shared on their Instagram page:
Padmavati went on floors last year and was reportedly chasing an October 20 deadline, something which seems a little bit of an impossible affair now. Padmavati has been delayed several times already. The sets of the movie in Kolhapur were attacked and torched in March, damaging valuable property, props and costumes. Earlier in January, Mr Bhansali was assaulted on the sets of the movie in Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort by a Rajput group called Karni Sena.
According to a report in DNA, Mr Bhansali is reportedly done with major portions of the movie. Certain action sequences and Ranveer's portions as the younger version of Alauddin Khilji are remaining so far: "A lot of the shoot is still left. The major chunk may have been shot, but some big action sequences are still left. Ranveer's portions as the young Alauddin Khilji, too, remain to be shot," a source told DNA.
Padmavati is the third time that Deepika and Ranveer will work together in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. Padmavati marks Shahid's first project with each of his co-stars and also the director.
