Be careful what you wish for, cause you just might get it ALL! After watching Fawad Khan and Deepika Padukone walk the ramp together, all we could wish for was to see the fairytale pairing share the screen! Well, guess what? Our wish might just have been granted thanks to Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has finalized Fawad Khan to play Deepika Padukone’s screen husband in his period epic, Padmavati. According to reports, the actor was in Mumbai for the past few weeks, finalizing and sealing the deal.
Fawad Khan To Play Deepika Padukone’s Husband In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Next Movie!
While Fawad Khan plays the husband, Ranveer Singh will be seen as Deepika’s obsessive lover Alauddin Khilji in the movie. Now wouldn’t this be interesting to watch? Actors such as Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan were earlier approached for the role, but that didn’t seem to work out as they didn’t want to play the second lead. Fawad ended up bagging the role which seemed an excellent opportunity for him to pass.

“Bhansali wants 200 days from all his lead actors, including Ranveer Singh and Deepika. Fawad has those days to spare. In between, he has Karan Johar’s production, but it should not be a problem as KJo and Bhansali share a good equation. So they will work it out.” revealed a source.
Though there’s a sad news for Ranveer and Deepika fans, reports claim that the real-life couple won’t shoot a single scene together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. However, rumour has it that Deepika will have some steamy scenes with Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan.
