A picture of Padmavati starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, sharing an intimate kiss has gone viral. The image was reportedly taken in 2015 and was part of a photoshoot done by both the actors for Vogue.
According to the leaked reports, Bhansali doesn't want to engulfed in any controversy regarding Padmavati as they had already hit the headlines.
A source revealed to the Asian Age “He doesn’t care whether Ranveer and Deepika are seeing each other. He just wanted them to be discreet about public appearances together. He wanted to avoid the image of the two actors as a couple, as this could harm the film, where their hostility and not their compatibility is the driving force”.
“At a time when the film’s anxious producers, Viacom 18 Motion Picture, and Sanjay himself want to ensure those protesting against the film that the two have no scenes together, a picture of them getting cozy in public is eminently avoidable, to say the least”, a different source added.
The film also stars Shahid Kapoor and it will be released on 17th November.
