EXCLUSIVE: Deepika Padukone strains her neck, cancels Padmavati shoot
Problems for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati don’t seem to end. The movie has been suffering glitches for quite sometime now. First, there were reports of issues between the two male leads of the movie -Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
Later, the movie’s crew faced issues in Jaipur when the activists of Karni Sena damaged the set and beat up director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The sets of Padmavati were also damaged in Kolhapur last month, causing damage to the production team. After facing so many hurdles, the crew resumed the shoot of the movie last week.
While Shahid Kapoor started the shoot first, Deepika Padukone joined in later. However, a source close to the movie has informed us today that the leading lady of the movie has fallen sick. Deepika has suffered neck pain, due to which she has had to cancel the shoot today.
“Deepika was to shoot today. But she experienced some pain in the neck. It was slightly unbearable and hence she decided to skip the shoot and rest,” informs a source.
Adds another source, “She was uncomfortable shooting with the heavy costumes and thought that it would strain her neck further. Hence Deepika cancelled the shoot. She is in immense pain and has been advised rest for the next 2-3 days.”
Well, now this is some sad news for all the Deepika fans!
Meanwhile, here’s wishing the gorgeous actress a speedy recovery!
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and produced by Viacom18, Padmavati stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead. The movie is all set to release on November 17, 2017.
