The classic tale Padmavati reportedly showcases Ranveer Singh as an obsessive lover. But it’s Deepika’s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh whose role has yet to be cast. According to SpotBoye, a source said that Bhansali wants Shahid to play the role.

Bhansali wants Shahid to play the Chittor King who is married to Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh.

If Shahid does accept the role, this will be the first time the actor will be paired opposite Dippy; this will also be his first collaboration with Bhansali. Reports also suggest Ranveer and Deepika will not be sharing any screen space in the film.
