Bhansali’s special bond with Rai is well documented and now he has managed to rope in the beauty for a special appearance and song sequence for his next, the period drama Padmavati.  Based on the life of tyrant ruler Alauddin Khilji, the film has seasoned actors like Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone playing central characters in it.

A source close to the development told  ““Bhansali spoke to Ash and they both are really keen to make it work. The song will be filmed during a 15-20 day schedule, which includes rehearsals at a suburban studio. Ash also has a few dialogues…This (the song) will be completely different from any thing seen before,” the source added.

It’s been six years since Aishwarya and Sanjay collaborated for a film. The last time they worked together was for 2010 film Guzaarish.

Padmavati is a period drama which is set to hit the screens on November 17, 2017
