If there’s one new couple we love to see, it would be Deepika Padukone and Vicky Kaushal. She is the latest Bollywood diva as she is causing a stir with her performances. However, there is a very popular rumor that the actress refused to work with him in Padmaavat. It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali initially thought of casting Vicky Kaushal for the role of Rawal Ratan Singh. It was the King of Mewar who decided to fight the forces of Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) in the film. Sanjay Leela Bhansali had thought of Vicky Kaushal for the role. However, it looks like Deepika Padukone has made it clear that she wants a bigger star in the role.
In the end, it was Shahid Kapoor who played the role, In fact, people thought Shahid didn’t fit the king persona. Sanjay Leela Bhansali said he has several actors in mind for the role of Raja Ratan Singh. But it was Shahid who was finalized. It was the first time Shahid and SLB did a project together. However, in 2018, Deepika and Vicky shared screen space in the ad for a ticketing platform.
It was the same year as Padmaavat was released. So we don’t know how true that is. Padmaavat was one of the most written films of 2017-2018 due to the protests that erupted around it. From right-wing groups to Rajput organizations, people have taken to the streets to distort the facts. There was also vandalism. Eventually, it was released in January 2018 and earned over Rs 300 at the box office. Ranveer Singh walked away with all the laurels for a sparkling performance. Padmaavat remains one of the most awarded films for SLB and Deepika.
