Sanjay Leela Bhansali is making headlines these days because of Padmavati. The famous director faced many protests during the release of his film Bajirao Mastani. But with Padmavati, he does not want to take any chances and is doing hard-core research for his magnum opus.
Talking about Padmavati, a source told Indian Express, "With Padmavati, the period that would be tracked is the late 13th and 14th century. Unlike Bajirao, this one is set in an even older era. Bhansali and his team are eyeing every minute detail of the era, the Khilji dynasty and the culture of Mewar from where Rani Padmavati belonged.''
The source further added, "They want to avoid any unneeded confrontation as it happened during Bajirao Mastani when certain clan members stood up in arms against the portrayal of Bajirao.''
The report also stated that the work related to the movie is in full swing and from the past two weeks workers have been toiling hard to make a huge palace set for the movie at the Mehboob studio.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali does not want to delay the movie and would start the shooting of Padmavati in September.
Reportedly, Padmavati will star Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
