The cast has not yet been finalised by the makers. Previous reports claimed that Vicky Kaushal had been roped in to play Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in this classic tale.

But now, the recent buzz claims that Shahid Kapoor will be playing the role of Deepika Padukone’s husband in Padmavati. This will be the first time when Deepika and Shahid will work together.

Actor Fawad Khan was also approached for the movie, but there were date issues. He couldn’t give his 200 days at a stretch and that too immediately as they will start shooting from September.

Interestingly, Padmavati also stars Deepika’s rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh as the obsessive Sultan Alauddin Khilji. Reportedly, the duo will not be sharing any scenes together.
