Ranveer Singh storms out of ‘Padmavati’ sets after argument with Bhansali


Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’ has been making news since its inception for all the wrong reasons. The latest update on the movie is that all is not well between Ranveer Singh and Bhansali.

The shooting ‘Padmavati’ is going on in full swing. Though lead actress Deepika Padukone is away in Cannes, Ranveer is filming his portions. Both Ranveer and Deepika have previously worked with Bhansali in ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela - Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, and have high regards for the director.

However, Ranveer got into an argument with Bhansali while shooting and angrily stormed out of ‘Padmavati’ sets. According to a report, the team was shooting for a crucial scene on Allauddin Kilji, enacted by Ranveer, when the actor and the director had a difference of opinion, which turned into a heated argument, following which Ranveer stormed out of the set.

"The two spent a good few minutes discussing the scene and it kind of turned into an argument. After a few minutes, Ranveer made a quick exit from the set to retire to his vanity van. He took some time off to cool off before resuming the shot," a report in India.com quoted a source as saying.

The source further revealed that the incident didn’t at all affect the equation between Ranveer and Bhansali as both are thorough professionals and don't let such things affect their bond.

"The two are thorough professionals. And that apart, Ranveer has high regards for Bhansali. He feels indebted to him for giving him Ram Leela that the actor dubs as his 'grand showcase.' Creative differences are a normal, regular affair and both Bhansali and Ranveer know better than letting it ruin their personal or professional relationship," the source added.

Besides Deepika who plays the titular character if the queen of Chittor, the period drama also stars Shahid Kapoor in the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, husband of Padmavati, and Aditi Rao Hydari as Alauddin Khilji’s wife Kamala Devi.

The movie is slated to hit theatres on November 17.
