As the myth goes,when Alluddin Khilji,the fierce Islamic invader , expressed a desire for a glimpse of the beauteous Rani Padmavati she agreed on one condition. That he glimpse her only in a mirror.
Hence in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati Ranveer Singh who plays Khilji will have only a glimpse of Deepika Padukone in the entire film, and that too in the mirror.
Sources indicate the crucial mirror in which Ranveer will get a glimpse of Deepika is being custom-designed.
“It would be no ordinary mirror. Made of the finest wood that money can buy and carved on the borders with the most elegant designs man or woman ever conceived, this mirror would be a work of art and a joy forever,” says a source close to the project.
According to the insider the mirror would cost a small fortune. “Enough to fund three of Anurag Kashyap’s films(excluding Bombay Velvet) and six of Onir’s experimental yarns.”
