After Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh also pulls out of an promotional activity post Padmavati’s postponement – Ranveer Singh was set to appear on Remo D’Souza’s Dance Champions to promote Padmavati.
Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor‘s Padmavati has been in the eye of a storm since a while now. Controversy surrounding the portrayal of Rani Padmavati (played by Deepika), saw several fringe groups and political parties demanding a ban on the film. The protests intensified and even threats were issued. Hence, the makers (Viacom 18) decided to postpone Padmavati and instructed their stars to stay away from the limelight for a bit. Following this, Deepika Padukone cancelled her visit to the GES summit and now, looks like Ranveer Singh has also pulled out of an promotional activity following Padmavati‘s postponement.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ranveer was going to shoot for Remo D’Souza’s Dance Champions. But he cancelled last minute. As source from the sets revealed to the leading tabloid, “The shoot was slated for Monday (November 20) and had been planned well in advance. When the production house (behind Padmavati) announced that they are voluntarily deferring the film’s release, the promotional appearance on the show was called off too, subsequently sending the show’s team into a tizzy because the contestants had prepared their acts on chart busters from Ranveer’s films. Additionally, a special number was planned with Ranveer and Bir Radha Sherpa, the winner of Remo’s previous show, Dance Plus. Changes had to be made in the songs and script overnight so the shoot was delayed by a day but the team pulled it off without any glitches on Tuesday.
Interestingly, on Monday itself, Ranveer was seen chilling with Remo and Salman Khan on the sets of Race 3. So quite clearly, Ranveer did not just vanish. He came, meet Remo and must have personally explained the whole scenario. We are sure everyone understands the situation he is in and here’s wishing that the protests and controversies around Padmavati end soon and all’s well pretty soon.
