As the myth goes, when Alauddin Khilji, the fierce Islamic invader, expressed a desire for a glimpse of the beauteous Rani Padmavati, she agreed on one condition. That he can see her only in a mirror.
Hence in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, Ranveer Singh who plays Khilji will have only get a glimpse of Deepika Padukone in the entire film, and that too in the mirror.
“It would be no ordinary mirror. Made of the finest wood that money can buy and carved on the borders with the most elegant designs, this mirror would be a work of art and a joy forever,” says a source close to the project.
According to the insider the mirror would cost a small fortune. “Enough to fund three of Anurag Kashyap’s films and six of Onir’s experimental yarns.”
