While shooting for the previous schedule of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati , Shahid Kapoor, chose to shift base to a popular five star in the suburbs close to Mumbai’s Filmcity ,in a bid to save time commuting and dedicate more time to the film’s shooting.
The star who had a grueling schedule that included late nights and early mornings, coupled with his challenging fitness regime , chose to move into a hotel closer to the sets.
Reveals a source, “A hectic shooting schedule for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama-Padmavati, coupled with Mumbai’s testing traffic, has compelled Juhu-resident Shahid Kapoor to shift base to a popular Goregaon five-star since he would spend over 4 hours just travelling .Shahid would shoot early in the morning right into the wee hours of the night, this while also working out simultaneously to get into shape as a warrior king. He felt it made more sense to shift into a hotel for a couple of days to save time. He is really giving the film his all and is ensuring that he meets all deadlines.”
