Shahid Kapoor to wear heels for ‘Padmavati’ to match up to Deepika Padukone’s height?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati‘ featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in main roles has already kick-started with its shooting. But it looks like the makers are facing a few problems owing to height difference between the actors, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Dippy’s husband, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh while Deepika plays Rani Padmavati in the movie. Now, in earlier times, the king was always said to be taller than the Queen. So, according to sources, Shahid has to wear heels shoes to match up to Deepika’s tall frame.

A source close to a leading daily states, “Shahid, who joins ‘Padmavati’ crew, is shorter than Deepika so the look tests between them are not working. Because they are playing king and queen, Bhansali needs to figure out a way to make them appear equal. At that time, kings were not shorter than their queens, and Rajput tradition is conservative, so there is no way that the director can work his way around the history. Delhi-based designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula, who are working with SLB for the first time and designing for the looks of Ranveer Singh, DP, Shahid, have been told to find a way to make Shahid look equal to Deepika in height, may be give him heels etc!”

Now, this sounds interesting! ‘Padmavati’ will be releasing on November 17, 2017.
