Ranveer Singh will be seen together with Deepika Padukone next in the film Padmavati, which is being directed by Sanjay Leela Bansali. The film has recently gone onto the floors and also has Shahid Kapoor play a pivotal role in it. 'Padmavati' sees Deepika playing the role of Queen Padmini while Shahid essays the character of her husband, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. Ranveer plays the antagonist Alauddin Khilji, who declares war on Chittor, motivated by his desire for Padmini. Recently when asked during an interview if he was indeed paid lesser than Deepika, the actor admitted, "Let me put it this way, if i am the leading man of a film, and if the filmmaker is asking me to support him in a certain aspect so as not to burden the budget of the film, I will do whatever I can to support his vision."
