Shahid Kapoor has been shooting for his first Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie, ‘Padmavati’. However, it seems he’s now had to shift base for the film and has therefore been staying in a hotel.

Mid-Day reports that the actor was facing a long commute with Mumbai traffic and is now staying in a 5-star hotel near the Film city. A source told the publication, “Shahid would spend four hours travelling. He moved into a Goregaon hotel for the previous schedule, given that it is closer to Film City. He would start shooting early in the morning and continue working till the wee hours of the next day. Since he needed to sport two distinct looks for the film, working out was crucial. Shahid will stay there for a few weeks.”

It must be difficult for the actor to stay away from his family. A source from the film’s unit reveals, “One day, after an early pack up, Shahid’s wife Mira, and Misha, came to visit him. Along with Ranveer, Deepika, and other key cast members, the trio had a small gathering at the hotel.”.

On an alleged fallout between Kapoor and the other male lead Ranveer Singh, the source adds, “They are competing, but it’s a constructive and healthy competition. They both have well chalked out roles and scenes. The rumours are bogus. Off set, they are quite warm with each other”,

‘Padmavati’ also stars Deepika Padukone and the scheduled for release in November.
