Top stars rejected Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati but why ?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has the perfect cast. Deepika Padukone as Padmavati leading the pack along with Shahid Kapoor as Rana Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.

But initially, SLB had planned to cast top leading A-list superstars opposite Deepika. But none of them took it up and the reasons was shocking.

Since the film is named Padmavati, all the big stars rejected the film thinking that it will be a female oriented film starring DP as the lead. According to Rajeev Masand, “Bhansali stuck with his leading lady even after top male stars offered to star in it if the director was willing to change the title to sound less like it revolved around the heroine. Deepika is returning the favour by standing firmly by Bhansali’s side, focusing solely on Padmavati, even as her co-actors Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor are dividing their time between Bhansali’s set and ad-films, appearances, and the like.”

Now, that’s shocking for sure!
