Speculation that after so many rejections from Deepika Padukone to play her husband in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film ‘Padmavati‘, finally the makers have approached Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor to play the role.
Shahid Kapoor is also happy to be a part of the film as he would go for a paternity leave soon.
The ‘Udta Punjab’ star and his wife are expecting their first child in September and after that he will be free to back to track.
Apparently Ranveer Singh will play the role of Magnum Opus in the film but the actor to play Deepika’s husband is yet to be finalised.
Earlier when the handsome hunk Fawad Khan was approached, Deepika was happy but that also didn’t work, may be Fawad is not comfortable to do any intimate scene.
