Deepika Padukone

Looks like Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are all set to hit a hatrick soon…because there’s gossip doing the rounds that the gorgeous actress is set to play Padmavati in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next movie based on Rani Padmani.

A leading site has stated that the actress has been roped into play the titular role in the magnum opus, following much speculation.

The site further stated that her rumoured current beau and another SLB favorite Ranveer Singh might play Allaudin Khilji, while Masaan actor Vicky Kaushal might step in as Padmini's husband, Rana Ratan Singh.

Deepika might be busy with the final schedule of her Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, but she is apparently going to begin shooting for this epic love story in September.

The story is said to based on Padmavat, where Rani Padmini’s enticing beauty makes Allaudin Khilji luster after her. In the ensuing battle, her husband loses his life, while she self-immolates herself to escape the clutches of Khilhji.

SLB, who directed an opera based on the subject in Europe, is expected to add his brand of grandeur to the love story.

After playing star-crossed lover Ram-Leela and Bajirao-Mastani, this could be Deepika and Ranveer’s third outing in a grand drama. But unlike the first two movies, the two wouldn’t play conventional lovers, if the cast is finalised as per the site.
