As far back as the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati hit the web, it is difficult to envision anybody yet Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji. Reports were doing the rounds that Ajay Devgn was the first decision for the part, yet in the event that Deccan Chronicle is to be accepted, there is no reality to them.
A source in Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions expelled the stories as “superfluous PR” and told the distribution, “Ajay was never offered Padmavati. The Khilji part was Ranveer Singh’s from the very begin. Ajay had been offered Bajirao Mastani; he was the principal decision for the part. Also, Bhansali sir was quick to collaborate with him again after Hum… Dil De Chuke Sanam. Be that as it may, things didn’t work out at that point.”
Ajay had before conceded that he was offered Bajirao Mastani, however it didn’t work out as he and Sanjay Leela Bhansali couldn’t concur on the terms and conditions.
Evidently, the Golmaal Again on-screen character cited an amazing charge, which constrained Bhansali to approach his Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela legend, Ranveer Singh. Not only this, Ajay was purportedly made a request to apportion 200 back to back days to shoot the period dramatization, which would have conflicted with the shooting timetable of his home generation, Shivaay.
Padmavati, which additionally stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, has been pushed uncertainly. Hypothesis is overflowing that the film will discharge in February 2018.
