Every recent update concerning Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ was regarding its latest spat with the Karni Sena. Finally, something new is coming around from sets of the forthcoming entertainer.
Reports have suggested that Shahid Kapoor, who will play Rawal Ratan Singh, will be seen in two different looks.
The first schedule, which the 35-year-old actor has already shot, will show him in a lean and sculpted physique, while it is being touted that for the next sequence, Kapoor will have to put on some weight.
Samir Jaura, Shahid’s trainer, divulged, "Since he plays the role of a king (Raja Rawal Ratan Singh), Shahid will have to put on a certain amount of weight to reflect the regal look and complement the majestic costumes. For starters, he will have to put on weight — at least five to 10 kilos, although the focus is on building muscles through rigorous strength training exercises. Earlier, I insisted on outdoor and functional training, but we have cut down on that now."
