NEW DELHI: If sources are to be believed, then Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming historical film, entitled ‘Padmavati,’ will feature two heroes.

Since the film is to be a big budget period drama, the 53-year-old director is leaving no stone unturned to have a strong casting.

While Deepika Padukone has been signed as the actress, the fate of the two heroes has been a topic of speculations.

Sources confirmed to ANI that while the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ director has zeroed down on Ranveer Singh as one, he is on a hunt for the second hero of equal stature as he aims to create a magical love story on celluloid.

He wants a virgin pairing as this never-seen-before love story between Deepika and the would-be hero is the crux of the story.

While Bollywood’s Mastani has been seen sharing electrifying chemistry with Ranveer in the past, it is her chemistry with the other actor that would be the talking point for the film.
