Deepika Padukone ‘steals’ Bhansali’s breakfast on ‘Padmavati’ sets


Deepika Padukone is currently busy shooting for her upcoming film ‘Padmavati’, alongside her rumoured beau Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the team are working against the clock to meet the release in November.

Now, given that Deepika is a fitness freak and maintains a good health and body, it is hard to imagine that she can be a food thief. Deepika stole Bhansali’s breakfast while he was busy directing her co-star Shahid.

Deepika herself shared this ‘achievement’ of hers on Instagram with a picture of her stealing Bhansali’s food. “Stealing SLB’s nashta while he’s busy directing #Padmapati #Padmavati,” Deepika wrote with a picture of two bowls with yummy-looking snacks on a tray. The food-items look like Gujarati delicacies.

Of course, the #Padmapati in her caption isn’t an error, but refers to Shahid, who plays the role of Deepika on-screen husband, Rawal Ratan Singh. Deepika plays the titular character of Rani Padmini, the queen of Chittor, while Ranveer plays Delhi Sultan Allaudin Khilji.

‘Padmavati’ has earned the wrath of a section of people who alleged that the makers have distorted historical facts in the movie. They have earlier manhandled Bhansali and vandalised the set when the shoot started in Rajastan’s Jaipur in January this year. Thereafter, Bhansali shifted the shooting location near Kolhapur in Maharashtra where also an irate mob burnt down the set, causing a lot of damage.

As of now, ‘Padmavati’ has been scheduled to release on November 17, and let’s hope the period drama makes it to screens on the scheduled day.
