Bhansali approached two film old Vicky Kaushal for the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh but, Vicky Kaushal refused Bhansali’s Padmavati.
We all know how well Bhansali’s last venture Bajirao Mastani with Ranveer and Deepika did. Their jodi was loved and appreciated by one and all, this fact made Vicky a little uncertain about his role. He was worried that the couple would steal all the limelight and the focus will be shifted to him. So he walked out of the project.
Though Vicky Kaushal has refused to speak about this matter. There are also reports suggesting that Sanjay Leela Bhansali himself was worried that Vicky won’t be able to do justice to the role of a Rajput king and showed him the way out. Now, the makers of Padmavati are looking for a suitable man to play the king. Reportedly, there will be several intimate scenes between Deepika Padukone and whomsoever plays the king.
Let’s see who turns out to be the lucky man.
