Padmavati is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project and it has been long since he has been working on it. The current cast of Bhansali’s Padmavati has Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. Not many know that this wasn’t the original cast choice of his movie.
When Sanjay initially penned down the script, he had Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai in his mind for the roles. Infact, even when Salman Khan and Aishwarya broke up, Sanjay went up to them with the script.
Aishwarya agreed to the script but had one condition and the condition was that Salman Khan would play the antagonist in the film, which means Salman will Alaudin Khilji so that they don’t have to shoot any scenes together. However, Salman disagreed and said that he wanted to recreate the magic they both created in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. He wanted it to be a love story with Aishwarya and wanted scenes with her.
However, Aishwarya’s condition didn’t allow that. So, he never agreed on doing this project. Well, what it would have been if Aishwarya and Salman were in Padmavati! We are equally excited for the movie with its original cast now. Are you excited? Let us know in the comments section below.
