The year 2016 has been quite unfavourable for B-town couples. A lot of shocking break-ups surfaced this year, including Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif, Adhuna-Farhan Akhtar and Arbaaz Khan-Malaika Arora. Now the latest couple to join the break-up league is Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. The too-much-in-love couple’s relationship has hit the rocks and looks like things are not so great between them anymore. The Bajirao Mastani couple had made everyone fall in love with them over and again with this sizzling chemistry on screen. While everyone was keenly expecting to see them set the fire all again with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next, we get to hear this unfortunate news of their parting ways. (ALSO READ: Confirmed!

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were to reprise the popular historic love story of the Moghul era in Padmavati but looks like that’s not happening anymore. Apparently, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was keen to have his lucky pair on-board for the third time after Bajirao Mastani and Ram-Leela. But things went vary between the Bollywood actor and the filmmaker and now Bhansali is looking for a replacement. Ranveer Singh asked for narration which reportedly hurt Bhansali’s feelings. The period filmmakers thinks Ranveer should have come on board without asking for a narration. However, the situation of cold war has now turned from bad to worse as Ranveer has no plans to make up with Bhansali too. (ALSO READ: Padmavati: OMG! Is Sanjay Leela Bhansali trying to replace Ranveer Singh?)
DNA quoted a source saying, “Ranveer made the grave mistake of asking Bhansali for a narration. The director feels that the actor owes him his success, and is not in the position to question his judgement. Like Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t ask for a narration from Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, and Salman with Sooraj Barjatya, SLB felt that the actor should have come on board without hearing the script.” The source further said, “Sanjay’s ego is hurt and he is just sulking. I am sure he will come around and make the film with Ranveer eventually.” Since Ranveer is riding high on success at the moment, he has a list of directors lined up with movie offers. “Ranveer is at the top of his game, and has no dearth of filmmakers wanting to work with him. He knows that he is far ahead of all his contemporaries and he has Aditya Chopra, Rohit Shetty and even Karan Johar in his corner. He is not about to go running back to SLB. Ranveer has instead, taken off for a holiday with his friends to Switzerland,” added the source.
Hence, fed up with Ranveer’s easy-going attitude Bhansali is looking for someone to replace Ranveer Singh in the film. He had approached Shah Rukh Khan with the offer but thing didn’t work positive for them. Hrithik Roshan was then offered with the role and he has shown keen interest in doing the film. Since Hrithik and Bhansali share a great bond since Guzaarish, so things are likely to work in their favour. But the question remains whether Ranveer Singh is still in the project or not. Well, only time can tell that. (ALSO READ: Padmavati: Do you know Deepika Padukone is charging 12 times her Ram-Leela paycheck?)
We hear that Deepika Padukone being the common link between Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali now has been endowed with the responsibility to solve their cold war. Since both Ranveer and Sanjay are not ready to bow down, it would be interesting to see who would make the first move and how. But this whole drama has in fact affected Ranveer and Deepika’s real life equation.
So according to the latest reports we won’t get to see Ranveer and Deepika together in Padmavati. Will Ranveer-Sanjay’s fight result in Deepika-Ranveer’s split too? What do you think guys? Do share your views in the comment section below.
