Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been in the news because of the casting rumours. First there was talk of Fawad Khan being in the film followed by Hrithik Roshan and even Shah Rukh Khan.
But according to a report in BollywoodLife.com, SRK wasn’t keen to do the second lead so he ignored it very smartly.
A source was quoted saying, “Shah Rukh who is busy with number of projects doubled his fee to reject the role. Now he is one of the highest paid actors and his demand was too huge for the film and so that didn’t happen”.
According to reports, Shahid Kapoor will now allegedly be playing Deepika Padukone’s husband in the film. Ranveer Singh will also allegedly be a part of the project.
