Ranveer Singh would kick start Padmavati from November 01
Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati had been announced a few weeks back, but the makers have not revealed when the movie will take off.
However, a leading daily had revealed how Ranveer Singh would kick start Padmavati from November 01 and it’s very much true.
The movie finally went on floors today and we have the proof. Shobha Sant, the CEO of Bhansali Productions revealed it on Twitter, “#GanpatiBappaMorya! #Excited. #Nervous. #NewBeginning.” Ain’t that cool?
Ranveer Singh has been prepping since quite a while now, but now finally Padmavati has taken off. Reportedly, the movie being shot at the Mehboob Studios, Bandra (Mumbai) after which they will move to Filmcity in Goregoan (Mumbai). Padmavati was initially supposed to take off from September itself, however after a lot of back and forth, the film has now finally begun.
The delay, reportedly, occurred because Eros pulled out at the last moment. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali later brought Viacom 18 on board in order to produce the movie.
In between, the reported fight between SLB and Ranveer over Shahid Kapoor has also delayed the movie. Anyway, we are happy that the movie has finally taken off!
Ranveer took inspiration from Hitler and Aamir Khan
For his prep, Ranveer had taken inspiration from Hitler and Aamir Khan. Aamir has always gone into hiding and gets into his role before the start of a film and the Padmavati star has done the same thing.
Ranveer will be playing the tyrant ruler – Alauddin Khilji in the movie and to further get deep into the psyche of the evil man, he has been reading some books about Hitler’s psyche. Ranveer has to completely forget who he is before he can play Khilji. It’s an intense role and Ranveer has to completely transform himself
Earlier, it was thought that Deepika Padukone would kick start Padmavati with a dance number, however Ranveer has already started it off. Padmavati follows the story of Alauddin’s love for Raja Raval Ratan Singh’s (Shahid Kapoor’s) wife Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone).
Reportedly, Aditi Rao Hydari will play Ranveer’s wife in the film – Kamala Devi in Padmavati. Well, we are super excited that his film has finally taken off.
