Deepika is set to join crew of Padmavati

Deeepika Padukone has landed in India after taking a small break from commitments. The actress has been traveling in and out of the country for work.  Deepika was supposed to shoot for Padmavati some time back and that got delayed when members of Rajput Karni Sena assaulted director Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Rajasthan. 

A source says, “The shoot for the film was called off after Bhansali was attacked and Deepika’s dates were wasted. So she decided to take some time off. However even though the set in Maharashtra was torched few days ago, we are ready to resume shooting and Deepika is likely to join us soon along with Shahid Kapoor.”

It is said that there will be a lot of security deployed on the sets now and instead of shooting in Rajasthan some portions of the film might be shot in Maharashtra.Earlier this week, a group of unidentified people set the film set on fire and according to makers, all costumes were damaged.

Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is expected to join the crew little later. The actor too decided to fly to Switzerland ,after the shoot was called off in Rajasthan, he has been holidaying with his set of friends since past couple of weeks and is going to shoot for the film alone as he will not be sharing screen space with Deepika Padukone.
