According to historical records, Alauddin and Padmavati never came face-to-face and hence the filmmaker intends to keep the essence of reality intact on celluloid.
“Ranveer and Deepika are not romantically paired opposite each other in the film. There is no romantic song or scene between them in the narrative of the film or even as a dream sequence. In fact, there is no interaction between Alauddin Khilji and Padmavati. This is written history and history cannot be tampered with,” sources said.”…Sanjay Leela Bhansali, as a filmmaker, has always been sensitive towards people’s sentiments and has treated the subject with utmost respect,” they added.
