Shah Rukh Khan to replace Ranveer Singh in Padmavati

While speculations have been rife about Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone reuniting for yet another period drama Padmavati, fans of the couple will have to wait for the same as now we hear that the actor has walked out of the project. On the other hand, makers have apparently now approached none other than Shah Rukh Khan for the film.

Sources claim that the script of Padmavati which revolves around a beautiful queen was posed to be a two hero project and Ranveer Singh, who swept away all awards last year, wasn't keen on doing the same at this point of his career. Due to this, Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has given one of the biggest blockbusters of his career with Devdas, decided to reunite with the actor of that film and approached Shah Rukh Khan for the film. A source close to the project mentioned that Shah Rukh not only loved the script but has even decided to give a look test for the film.

On the other hand, rumours have it that Shahid Kapoor has been signed on for the role of Deepika's husband in the film. Padmavati traces the journey of a beautiful queen Rani Padmini who becomes the obsession of Allauddin Khilji and the ruler is ready to go to any extent to get the queen, even if it means waging a war against her husband, Raja Ratan Singh.
However an official announcement on the same is awaited.
