sources close to the film "The set is being made for 'Padmavati'. The work started few days ago and it is likely to be completed in another two-three weeks. The shoot is likely to begin from next month so the set is getting ready at the earlier. However they refused to give any details about sets stating that "it's too early to say anything." 

There is a board outside the studio that reads Bhansali Productions. The National award-winning director is known for grand and lavish sets for his films. Both "Ram Leela" and "Bajirao Mastani" had huge sets erected at Filmcity in suburban Goregaon. 

Known for portraying tragic love stories on celluloid Bhansali this time has tried his hands on an anti-hero project as it is based on ruthless ruler Alauddin Khilji's obsession for Mewar queen Padmavati. Ranveer Singh is rumoured to be doing the film but the "Bajirao Mastani" actor is yet to confrim the same. Reportedly "Padmavati" will bring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer together again for the third time with Shahid Kapoor also playing a prominent role in the film.
