Although Bhansali is leaving no stone unturned to wrap the shoot of Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmavati by October, but his trouble continues to delay the historical project.
After the halt of Kaun Banega Crorepati shoot, the ongoing strike of Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), has affected the shooting of Padmavati as well.
A source said, "The crew was clocking in almost 18 hours' work every day to make sure the film keeps its release date. But, the protests have slowed down the film's shoot."
The source added, "Now, the team is barely able to shoot for eight to 10 hours a day due to reduced staff strength."
If the situation continues it will further delay the releasing date of Padmavati. The source further said, "The production house has given Bhansali a final word that he cannot overstep the deadline, due to monetary constraints. If the technicians do not get to work soon, Padmavati will be adversely affected."
