Shahid Kapoor reveals: I hope my film Padmavati is remembered for its love story

We know that team Padmavati is busy with the shoot of their movie. The lead stars including Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor have all been shooting in a hush hush manner after they experienced some interruptions in their shoot on several occasions.

A section of the audiences were not thrilled with the fact that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, alleged lovers in real life, are to play Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji in the movie. They suspected that there would be romantic scenes between the two, which would be disrespectful to the Queen Padmavati.

However, Bhansali and the team reassured everyone that there would be absolutely no scenes between Ranveer and Deepika, not even a dream sequence.

Well, Shahid Kapoor is playing Deepika’s husband in the movie – Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. During a recent interview, Shahid revealed an interesting fact. Apparently, the movie does have a very strong love story, like all Bhansali movies, but this time the love story is perhaps between Shahid and Deepika.

Shahid said, “Somehow, by default, in most actors’ careers – over the years – they are remembered by the love stories that they have done. They (love) break the barrier of time and audiences keep going back to them. I have been a part of a couple [of such films] and I hope my next film, Padmavati also falls into that category. It definitely has the makings of being something like that,”

Well, what do you think of that? Will the film be remembered for the love story of Shahid and Deepika? Does this make Shahid the main lead of the film?

What are your thoughts on this?
