Shahid Kapoor roped in to play Deepika Padukone's husband in SLBs 'Padmavati'
After much speculations, and many names surfacing to play the third lead role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next project 'Padmavati,' finally actor Shahid Kapoor has been roped in to play the character. However, it wasn't easy for Bhansali to convince Shahid, who has just welcomed his new-born daughter in the world.

The Udta Punjab actor has signed the film but along with that he has also forwarded a long list of terms and conditions that need to be taken care of. Reportedly, the actor's first condition is that he would be available to shoot only after few months since he just welcomed his new-born baby girl in the world. He wants to spend some time with his daughter and wife Mira.

Shahid will be seen in the role of Deepika Padukone's husband Raja Raval Ratan Singh in the film while Alauddin Khilji will be played by her alleged beau Ranveer Singh. Since, it is a love traingle that stars Bhansali's two favourite actors Ranveer and Deepika, Shahid asked the director that he too should be given the equal footing as Ranveer.

Well, Bhansali paid attention to the actor's demand and added a couple of monologues for the actor, making the role meatier. This is for the first time that Bhansali is collaborating with Shahid Kapoor.

Shahid had given tremandous performances in his last two films Udta Punjab and Haider. Well, this seems to be the reason that forced Bhansali to approach the actor for his next.

If reports are to be believed, the two leading men Ranveer and Shahid have already started bonding over gym sessions.
