Controversies around the movie Padmavati are refusing to vanish ever since the movie has gone on floors. These days the movie is facing all the hate because of political groups standing up and protesting against the movie for distorting history. This has led to the postpone of the movie and its next release date is expected to be February 14, 2018.
Meanwhile, we have something really interesting to share with you. Did you know that Ranveer Singh was not the first choice of the role of Alauddin Khilji in the movie? Yes, you read it right! Ranveer Singh who has earlier given two big hits with Sanjay Leela Bhansali – Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani was not his first choice for playing the role of an antagonist in the movie.
As per latest reports, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s first choice for the role was Ajay Devgn. Sanjay did approach Ajay for the movie. The two have worked together in the movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999). Sanjay really wanted Ajay to do the role but Ajay refused to do it because he didn’t want to invest one complete year on this film.
This is how Ranveer Singh came onboard. Well, we would have missed his amazing look from the movie if he wouldn’t have taken up this project. Also, we would like to know what you think about the ongoing Padmavati controversy. Let us know in the comments section below.
