‘Padmavati’ is a very big film, intense and romantic: Shahid Kapoor

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has said his keenly-awaited upcoming film ‘Padmavati’, which has been involved in several controversies due to its subject, has been made with good intent.

The shooting schedule of the film was disrupted twice as a few groups felt the filmmakers had cast Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh to show the romantic angle between Rajput queen Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji.

Shahid said “According to me, I have not shot any scene which has been changed. I think there were a lot of presumptions about the film, and people were presuming about the scenes.”

“The clarification has been given that no such scene is there in the film. I hope when people see this film, they will realise that the heart of the film and intent of the film is very good”

“This country and the people who live in it, and specially the area we are talking about in the film, will be glorified. I play a Rajput king and my character, I feel, will be admired by people.”

“It’s a very big film, very intense, romantic and looked forward to film for various reasons. I think it’s a labour of love for Mr. Bhansali. I had gone mad on Twitter after watching his last film (Bajirao Mastani), appreciating everyone, and never knew that I will be part of his (Bhansali’s) next film”

“So, it’s awesome to be working with someone whose work I have admired in the recent past. The film (‘Padmavati’) has a great cast and going to be a huge film. I am really excited, but I want to underplay it, so I am trying to do that right now” Shahid said.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Aditi Rao Hydari, releases in theatres this November.



  • Ram-Leela was an over-rated movie, and hence people didn’t have extremely-high hopes from Bajirao Mastani (Dilwale was expected to be better) – but it turned out to be an epic, due to which the hopes from Padmavati are extremely-high. Hope it lives up!


  • More than a decade in Bollywood.. Still can’t give 5 CLEAN HITS! Now Shahid is doing a film as a co-star of Ranveer, who started career in 2011 & has no family backup…!! Dope


    • It won’t bro the story is awesome and given that Bhansali is director this movie will be grand and Shahid has immense talent just bcoz of his choice of movies he couldn’t make it big but he still has age on his side maybe he will improve from here…best of luck to team Padmavati excited for the movie..


  • Padmavati is one of the biggest film of 2017 because it reunites the trio of SLB, Ranveer and Deepika . BM was a massive success beating Dilwale starring SRK, Kajol and Varun Dhawan directed by Rohit Shetty . BM was the 3rd Highest Grosser of 2015 after BB and PRDP . This has been a poor year for Bollywood especially the last 2 months . This film can be a massive turning point in Shahid, Ranveer and Deepika’s career . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • Shahid Kapoor is so excited to finally have a 100 crore grosser in his kitty after more than a decade of commercial failures. 😆😄😃😛😜


  • I watch only Deepika’s films. But I watch each of her films many times.
    I have seen:
    XXX: return of Xandier Cage 7 times
    Bajirao Mastani 9 times
    Tamaasha 5 times
    Piku 12 times
    Happy New Year 10 times

    I am hoping to watch Padmavati at least 15 times.


    • Have seen all Deepika’s movies multiple times except for Tamasha coz it has the recent flop Ranbir in it. Waiting eagerly for Padmavati.


  • The problem with shahid is his attitude. ..he thinks himself a superstar which he is obviously not. ..I read some article where newspaper mentioned him as a bollywood star and he got upset and told them to write superstar with his name. ..lol….common dude u r not even a star now ….that’s why I don’t like him….


    • Am not surprised. His wife mentioned on Koffee with Karan that Shahid is bollywood royalty, and Kjo humbly told her that Shahid is not. Ha ha ha. What a delusional world Shahid lives in!


  • You are short, DP is stick thin and tall. So you both look like case of Laurel and Hardy. Padmvati is going to sink because all involved in this movie are over rated and you are the tip of that mess…
