Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati seems to be in more trouble than expected. The latest threat to the film’s well-being comes from Shahid Kapoor. Days after reports surfaced about how Kapoor had fired his PR team, turns out that it was his publicist who had resigned instead.
It all goes back to the time when the trailer of the film was released recently. Shahid had enough screen space along with Deepika, but Ranveer Singh stole the show even though he came half way into the trailer and without any dialogues. He managed to leave the viewers in awe.
In fact, when Shahid Kapoor was approached for the role, one of his demands was to have equal screen space as Ranveer and Deepika. Sanjay Leela Bhansali went on to write the script keeping this in mind.
The promotions are being done keeping in mind the individual characters. It started with the solo posters of each of them followed by the trailer. The latest was Deepika’s song ‘Ghoomar’ and then Shahid and Deepika’s love song ‘Ek Dil Ek Jaan’ and their chemistry has been largely appreciated by the audience. Another poster was also released by the makers of Shahid Kapoor sitting on a throne.
Then what is it that Shahid is upset about?
According to sources, the publicists have refuted these claims and in turn said that they backed out from the deal and not the other way round.
Well, not much is known on the issue. Give the current circumstances surrounding the film, this just adds to the pile of hurdles. The film is barely being promoted by the makers. The hype around the movie has reached to the level of massive violent protests by the fringe groups.
The movie is slated to release on December 1.Read More
