Who will play Deepika’s husband?
With audiences expecting more from the next venture of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, it was announced that their next undertaking is “Padmavati”, featuring who other than the attractive Deepika Padukone as the female lead in this film which also was the lead in ‘‘Bajirao Mastani’’, the filmmakers are presently busy finalizing the star to play the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, Padmavati’s husband. It is said that Bollywood superhero, King Khan was approached as it was thought he would justify the role of Deepika Padukone‘s husband in the film. SRK put down his price for the movie at Rs. 90 Crores! The filmmakers then decided to opt for another male star that can do justice to the role.
Presently the confirmed stars for the movie “Padmavati” are Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, and Ranveer Singh. Due to his busy schedule as the Bollywood superhero King Khan is too full of other multiple projects to be able to accept Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s offer, doubling his remuneration was another way to reject the offer, sources close to SRK say.
At first, film director/producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali was dumbstruck when Bollywood’s King Khan demanded such a huge price as remuneration as he is currently charging Rs 50 Cr and what he demanded their project was almost double his usual remuneration price.
The humorous star has wittily opted out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” film’s offer. The role was taken and accepted by Shahid Kapoor who was signed on for the movie for 10 Crores to play the role of Deepika’s husband in the movie “Padmavati.”
