Shahid Kapoor In Bhansali’s Next?

If all goes well, Shahid Kapoor will be back in Sanjay Bhansali’s next, a  contemporary love story that the visionary filmmaker is planning next.

Apparently the  filmmaker is deeply impressed by Shahid’s “skilled, subtle,nuanced and under-understated”  performance in Padmavati.

Says a source from the film’s unit, “Shahid is the band mutthi, surprise packet of Padmavati.Everyone expects  the focus to be on  the dramatic  conflict between Ranveer and  Deepika Padukone.  But the truth is, Shahid has as much prominence in the script than his two co-stars, if not more.”

The  source goes on to state how Shahid came on  board as an outsider and is  now very close to the reclusive  filmmaker. “Not just Shahid but also his wife Mira, SLB has warmed up to the couple.And he adores their little daughter.  SLB is not  one  to  seek friendship with his actors. But this time, he has let his guards down.Shahidcame on board as the outsider among the three protagonists. Both Ranveer and Deepika had worked with SLB twice over. For Shahid it was a first.And he was apprehensive about the experience, specially since he wasn’t playing  the title role. But the way he has embraced his space in Padmavati will win Shahid a  huge amount  of critical praise and mass adulation.”

The clinching factor is not the friendship but the vast skills that Shahid has brought to his role of Rani Padmavati’s calm , strong-willed husband.

SLB has told close friends that   it will be Shahid in his next film, and none of  the other names being tossed around carelessly.
