Bollywood was surprised after reading the news about Shahid Kapoor working with alleged ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone in Padmavati. According to Spotboye, ''a few years ago, industry was abuzz with loud whispers of a romance brewing between the two, after Shahid's car was spotted outside Deepika's building on many occasions.''
''A few months later, Shahid got linked up with others and Deepika met Ranveer Singh. It was obvious that the Sasha-Dippy love story had fizzled out.''
But now, the alleged ex-lovers are all set to work together in Padmavati but Shahid has two conditions! The actor who has just entered fatherhood will not start the shoot of the movie immediately and he wants some changes in the script. (Click on the slider below to see some candid pictures of Shahid and Deepika.)

Revealing the inside details, a report in Mumbai Mirror stated, ''The surprise package of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's dream project Padmavati undoubtedly is Shahid Kapoor in the role of Allauddin Khilji. Kapoor seems to know that too and wants to make the most of this love triangle. ''
''We hear this was his precondition for accepting the role-that it would be a triangle and he would have screen space equal to SLB favourite Ranveer Singh's. Bhansali has rewritten portions of the film with Kapoor in mind, and has brought in long monologues befitting his histrionic strengths. We surely don't envy Deepika Padukone's Padmavati who will be forced to choose between these two.''
This is the first time Shahid Kapoor will be working with Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Well, we are dying to see them create magic on-screen!
