Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his crew is going all out for the preparations of his magnum opus, Padmavati. Shahid Kapoor, who plays Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in the film, is currently training in sword fighting and a few leaked pictures have found their way to internet. Padmavati also features Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

Shahid is reportedly learning six different forms of sword fighting from six different trainers. A Mid Day report quoted a source as saying, “Rajputana style of sword-fighting is an evolved one, which requires the body to be both strong and agile at the same time. Shahid has been taught bits of Gatka, a mix of Angampora and Kalaripayattu. He is also learning spearplay, as the spear is a customary weapon among Rajputs.”
