Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Big Upcoming Project Padmavati finally went on floors on November 1st (READ HERE). Some of the social media private pages and accounts even edited Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji’s avatar while he was still gearing up for the shoot.
But, as per latest news from our sources, it was not Ranveer Singh who shot first clapping shot, but its Deepika Padukone who did the first shoot of the film. Talking about this, a source revealed that, “Yes, technically speaking, it was Deepika who faced the camera first for the film, since she is playing the title role. Sanjay sir also felt that she has been his lucky charm. So, she shot for over two hours on the lavish set created in Mehboob Studios.”
When Deepika was asked about the same in a recent event, she confirmed the news and said, “It is a very special movie for all of us. We had barely finished Bajirao Mastani and Sanjay sir offered me the film. It is a tribute to one of the most courageous and beautiful women. Our journey has begun and the next few months are going to be intense but exciting.“
