Ranveer and Shahid's cold war

Wednesday 26th October 2016 07:17 EDT

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' is finally set to go on floors, but troubles for the director just keep brewing. Reports suggest that the two male leads of the film, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor remain in a 'locked-horns' situation. Sources said Bhansali even tried calling both the actors for dinners to his place to help the two get along, however, they keep declining. The reason is said to be Ranveer's alleged displeasure at his role being changed for Shahid getting a bigger role.

It all began after lead actress of the movie, Deepika Padukone- who plays Rani Padmini, refusing to ramnce Vicky Kaushal who was signed to play her husband Rana Rawal Ratan Singh, as he remains relatively unknown. The role later went to Shahid, and reports are the script soon underwent a number of changes to give the actor a more substantial role, leading to Ranveer's character- Alauddin Khilji, being changed. It was initially planned that Ranveer will be the anti-hero to Deepika in the movie. With less than a month remaining for the shoot to commence, let's just hope all's well soon.
