Singer Arijit Singh is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s favourite


After the soulful Laal Ishq (from Ram Leela) and Aayat (from Bajirao Mastani), Sanjay Leela Bhansali collaborates with Arijit Singh yet again for a special song in Padmavati.

Arijit recently recorded a composition for Padmavati which will be one of the highlight songs in the film. Sources reveal that Arijit Singh was in Kolkata celebrating Durga Pooja .The filmmaker, who shares a warm equation with the popular singer, was so keen on having him sing this particular song, that he waited for him to return from Kolkata to record the soulful track.

It is for the very first time that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is making an “anti-hero” film- telling the tale of the greatest Sultan of Hindustan – the sharp and ambitious Turk, AlauddinKhilji and the legendary Mewar queen Padmavati, known for her beauty, intellect and the courage with which she fought her nemesis – the undefeated Alauddin.
