Deepika Padukone shoots for the ‘Jauhar’ scene with 300 junior artistes?


After wowing us with her stunning red carpet appearances at Cannes Film Festival’s 2017 edition, Deepika Padukone is back and is shooting for the magnum opus ‘Padmavati‘, with utmost dedication. The period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is being shot in Mumbai’s Film City. And recently, we heard something interesting.

If reports are to believed, then Deepika Padukone has already shot for the climax of this film with almost 300 junior artistes. We all remember the legend of Rani Padmavati, who jumped into the pyre along with hundreds of other females, to escape the wrath of Mughals, once their king and soldiers were dead and the city was taken over. Sends chills down your spine, right?

The same sequence, when replicated on screen, will see Deepika, who plays the role of Rani Padmavati, performing the ‘Jauhar’ (self-immolation) scene. Reportedly, the entire sequence has left director Bhansali impressed with the way it has turned out and shot.
