Here's a bad news for all Ranveer Singh fans! Reportedly, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is very upset with Ranveer and is planning to sign Hrithik Roshan with Deepika Padukone for Padmavati.
A source told DNA, "Ranveer made the grave mistake of asking Bhansali for a narration. The director feels that the actor owes him his success, and is not in the position to question his judgement. Like Shahrukh Khan doesn't ask for a narration from Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, and Salman with Sooraj Barjatya, SLB felt that the actor should have come on board without hearing the script."

The source added, ''When Ranveer asked him for the script, Bhansali declined and began approaching other actors for the role. He went to SRK, (who can't give him the 200 days he wants for the shoot) and then he went and gave a narration to Hrithik in the hope of getting him on board to teach Ranveer a lesson.''

"Sanjay's ego is hurt and he is just sulking. I am sure he will come around and make the film with Ranveer eventually. Meanwhile, SLB is hoping that Ranveer gets wind of the fact that he is looking around to replace him, and come running back. However, that isn't about to happen. Ranveer is at the top of his game, and has no dearth of filmmakers wanting to work with him,'' the source revealed.
''He knows that he is far ahead of all his contemporaries and he has Aditya Chopra, Rohit Shetty and even Karan Johar in his corner. He is not about to go running back to SLB. Ranveer has instead, taken off for a holiday with his friends to Switzerland.''
''It will be interesting to see if Deepika remains in the film, while she is professional and doesn't interfere in the casting of the film, Ranveer was 'ousted' for making a reasonable request, and as a girlfriend she will support that," said the source.
