We've got an EXCLUSIVE update on the whole conspiracy theory surrounding Padmavati. Read on to know...
A lot has been speculated about Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. While initially it was almost confirmed that Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are reuniting with this periodic venture. Lately there have also been contrary reports suggesting how Ranveer has fallen out with Bhansali and that Hrithik Roshan is all set to replace him in this film. In fact ahead of Hrithik, some even considered Shah Rukh Khan's name for the same. But ever wondered why despite so many speculations, why Bhansali has still not made an official announcement? Why is he not putting an end to this guessing game? Wasn't he supposed to start shooting Padmavati by September? Well, we tell you why..

Turns out Bhansali has decided to make an official announcement on the cast of Padmavati only once he locks the third lead of the film - i.e. the one who will be playing Deepika's husband in the film. Yes! That's the bone of contention and he is investing all his time in finalising Padmavati's husband right now. But given that the husband's role is like a second fiddle to the main lead, very few actors are showing much interest in this film. Plus what's making this situation even worse is the fact how Deepika too is interfering in this casting by blindly rejecting actors who she thinks is not fit to play her husband.

So right now, Vicky Kaushal, Fawad Khan and Shahid Kapoor are in the running to play DP's husband wherein Vicky has been put on hold; Fawad was spotted outside Bhansali's office recently but is unlikely to take up this film considering he has no dates to give and Shahid, who is probably the only hope left.
Now will Bhansali resolve things with Ranveer and retain him as Deepika's hero? Who out of Shahid, Vicky and Fawad will get finalised as DP's husband? Keep watching this space to find out as the official announcement on the cast of Padmavati is expected to happen within a week or so. Stay tuned for more updates!
