Padmaavat is the super successful film in Bollywood film industry that released in January this year. The movie made way into the theatres on January 25th amidst a lot of controversies and expectations. The film has made it to the list of all-time highest grossing Hindi movies. Deepika Padukone played the titular role in the movie. Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor played key roles in the film.
Ranveer Singh received a lot of appreciations for his character and Shahid’s portrayal of Maharawal Ratan Singh had also earned him accolades. The actual fact is that Shahid’s character was initially offered to Prabhas who impressed the Bollywood audiences with the film Baahubali.
Prabhas has politely rejected the offer from Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Prabhas is reportedly said to have disliked the role in the film and hence declined the offer. Prabhas always wanted to be seen in a role that runs around his character. And moreover, it happened just after Baahubali when Prabhas was still not ready for a Bollywood debut.
After Prabhas declined the movie’s offer, Shahid came on board and did the project.
