No interaction between Padmavati, Khilji in film: Bhansali
The film has come under fire from various groups who have threatened action against the makers if 'historical facts are distorted'
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has rubbished rumours and reports of a romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and the invader Allauddin Khilji in his forthcoming movie Padmavati.
"There is no interaction whatsoever between the characters played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh," says Bhansali. A video recording by Bhansali declaring zero interaction between Rani Padmavti and Khilji is expected to be put out.
A source close to Bhansali says, "We've been going hoarse saying there is absolutely no dream sequence featuring Deepika and Ranveer. They haven't shot together in Padmavati for a single day. We don't know who started this rumour of the two being together. It has caused monstrous mischief for the project and created havoc with Mr Bhansali's peace of mind."
Ranveer Singh has also recently clarified that he has no scenes with Deepika. To a question whether having Deepika, with whom he shares a personal equation, as his co-star in this 'stressful film' helped, Ranveer said: "I have no scenes with her in this film at all. But it's nice to have someone you can confide in. It's comforting."
