Revealed: Shahid Kapoor sports beard look for ‘Padmavati’

Off late Shahid Kapoor has donned a beard look and it is highly speculated that it is Shahid’s look for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s periodic drama, ‘Padmavati’.  Bhansali is very particular about his characters and he makes his actors to get into the avatar much before the film actually starts rolling. He wants them to be accustomed with their new avatar so that they feel comfortable and give their best when they face the camera.

Shahid Kapoor will reportedly play Deepika Padukone’s on-screen husband, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in the movie. Ranveer Singh would play the main role of Alauddin Khilji. Shahid Kapoor has been roped in after Deepika refused to share screen with a TV actor which Bhansali has cast earlier. Deepika wants to pair opposite a leading Bollywood actor and not a TV actor and so the guy was replaced by Shahid.

For the first time Shahid Kapoor will be sharing screen space with Deepika Padukone.

‘Padmavati’ is a period drama that revolves around the obsession of Sultan Alauddin Khilji for Rani Padmavati of Mewar who was known for her intellect and beauty. The movie will go on floors in September and will release in December next year.
