Aishwarya Rai to do a special song in 'Padmavati'?
Aishwarya Rai who had worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansli in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘Devdas’ and ‘Guzaarish’, might team up with the filmmaker for his upcoming film Padmavati. The period drama stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, who too have joined Bhansali for the third time after ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela - Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
According to SpotBoye, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is being lured in for a special song in the romantic epic, which stars Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
The report adds that Bhansali came up of the idea of Bachchan at Mehboob Studios, thinking she would be the perfect fit for an elaborate special number in the film.
‘Padmavati’ is based on Rani Padmavati of Chittor and wife of king Rawal Ratan Singh. Sultan Alauddin Khilji was so besotted by her beauty and intellect that he attacked the kingdom to claim her. The movie is about Padmavati’s courage and sacrifice and how she saves her honour.
Deepika stars as Padmavati, while Ranveer plays the grey-shaded role of the Delhi Sultan. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor as Padmavati’s husband, and Aditi Rao Hydari as Alauddin Khilji’s wife Kamla Devi.
