After the grand success of Bajirao Mastani, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is looking for lead actors in his next film Padmavati. In fact, the star actor Ranveer Singh was initially selected for the movie. But he hasn’t been finalized for the film. As per the sources, Ranveer Singh wanted to read the script before signing which disappointed the director.
Bhansali then roped in Shahrukh Khan for the film but since the Dilwale actor couldn’t make a commitment for 200-day which Bhansali required, so SRK wasn’t finalized.
