There won't be a single scene of the duo together in the film
Forbidden passion runs at the core of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next costume drama Padmavati. The enamoured villain is Allauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh. The object of his affection, the Rani of Mewar, by his real-life love Deepika Padukone.
Anyone with an idea of how this legend ends, knows that the two won’t share screen space at all. Says a source, “Padmavati is the ultimate saga of forbidden love. Ranveer’s character is completely besotted by Deepika. The state of Mewar goes to war against the Khilji dynasty over her honour. But she never meets the man who loses his heart to her. So, there will be not a shot where Ranveer and Deepika will shoot together.”
Surprising, given that the two lovers had such palpable screen chemistry in SLB’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
