Padmavati

Shahid Kapoor is playing a Rajput warrior prince in Padmavati.

After members of the Rajput Karni Sena stalled filming of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati for allegedly presenting “distorted facts” in the movie, one of its leading casts Shahid Kapoor has said that the film’s shooting will resume soon.

The group even roughed up Bhansali and the Padmavati team when the director along with his crew was shooting at Jaigarh Fort.

“I don’t know the details as I am promoting Rangoon right now.”
