The first shooting of Padmavati to begin from next week. The schedule will kick off with a song filmed on Deepika Padukone.
According to sources, Deepika has already done a look test for the film and Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor will be doing the same in a couple of days, separately.
Both have been growing their beards and hair to play their respective characters — Shahid as the Rajput king Rana Ratan Singh of Chittor and Ranveer as the Sultan of Delhi, Alauddin Khilji.
The dance sequence will be shot on a set constructed at Mehboob Studio. Shahid and Ranveer are not needed next week as they are not part of the song.
