NEW DELHI: After much speculations, music director Shreyas Puranik has confirmed that Deepika Padukone would star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly ambitious project ‘Padmavati’ alongside Ranveer Singh.

After the success of ‘Ram-Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani, the upcoming project, which is supposedly based on tyrant emperor Alauddin Khilji's obsession for Padmavati, the queen of Chittor, will mark the third collaboration of Sanjay-Deepika and Ranveer.

Reportedly, Prakash Kapadia, who earlier scripted ‘Bajirao Mastani’, has reportedly been roped in to write 'Padmavati.’
