Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif Too Tall For Shahid Kapoor, Aamir Khan

Besides the attack by fringe elements , throughout the making of Padmavat the one problem that filmmaker Sanjay Bhansali had to face, was …how to make Shahid Kapoor look as tall, if not taller, than his leading lady Deepika Padukone.

According to a source, “It was  an ongoing problem during the shooting. Shahid was playing the King and Deepika was playing the Queen. He couldn’t possibly look shorter than her on screen. It would  have gone against  royal  protocol. Bhansali and the unit had to constantly fudge Shahid’s height to make him look as tall.”

And now the  unit of Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs Of Hindostan are facing the same problem vis-à-vis their leading man Aamir Khan.

Says a source from Yashraj , “Katrina is way too tall for Aamir’s height. There is a constant stress on the sets to ensure they look equally matched physically on screen.”

 When Tabu used to work with heroes taller than she was, the actress had to constantly slouch  on  screen. Let’s hope Katrina doesn’t develop a  hunchback in “keeping up with” her leading man.
