After the stupendous success of 'Bajirao Mastani' Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be yet again doing a period film. This time his ambitious film revolves around Alauddin Khilji and his obsessive love for Queen Of Mewar, Rani Padmavati. Now the latest news we hear is that the maverick film-maker has started prepping for this film.
A Hindustan Times report quoted a source close to Bhansali saying that he has started working on the script of the film, which is likely to highlight the ruler’s obsession with the queen of Mewar, Rani Padmini (also known as Padmavati). “Bhansali has already started doing his research. Khilji is the most powerful character that Bhansali has ever portrayed in a film. He has been reading up extensively about the ruler’s conquests, his historical background and journey. He recently met three generations of historians to trace the life of Khilji," added the source.
Speculations are rifle that Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji. However Bhansali continues to remain tight-lipped about his cast. The film is slated to release on 15th December 2017.
