Shahid Kapoor, who is part of SLB’s ambitious venture Padmavati, has cleared the fuss about the film regarding the concept of two-hero project in the recent media interaction.
During the recent Jio MAMI festival, the hero of Padmavati said, “This is the stuff I’ve been reading in papers and I find it absurd when they say it is two hero film. The film has three principle characters. These are just ways of creating some kind of material which is exciting at some frivolous level.”
The 35-year old actor further added that, “It’s a great opportunity for all three of us. It’s a great role for Deepika, a fantastic role for Ranveer and great one for me. I am happy that the film has been cast the way it has and it is getting made.”
By praising Bhansali’s direction and Bajirao Mastani, Shahid said, “I wish Padmavati came to me five-six years ago, I would have done it. I am happy it is coming to me today, I am happy that I am working with a filmmaker like Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When I saw Bajirao Mastani, I went berserk because I absolutely loved it.”
He further added, “I am grateful for the opportunity. If five years ago I would’ve said no to it, someone would’ve whacked me and said that’s the stupidest mistake of my life.”
The shooting of Padmavati will kickstart from the 1st week of November and will release on 17th November, 2017.
