The upcoming project of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati, has been one of the most talked about movies. This movie holds the title of one the costliest movies in the making with a whooping budget of 180 crores! Bhansali, Eros International and Viacom 18 will be the co-producers of the movie.
A massive set has been put up at Mumbai’s Mehboob Studios. Though Mr. Bhansali would like to start the shooting of the movie right away, that doesn’t seem to be happening. One of the studios have ended up with cold feet due to the high budget of the movie.
With more delay, the lead actors will get busy with their other projects; Ranveer Singh with promotions of Befikre and Deepika Padukone with travelling for XXX: Return of Xander Cage. Trade pundits feel that in today’s scenario, this budget seems way off the mark for recovery and with the ongoing delays it is natural for studios to reconsider their decision.
Having the set and the cast ready, Mr. Bhansali cannot afford to lose anyone backing out of the production of the movie!
