Vicky Kaushal, who is garnering praise for his performance in "Raman Raghav 2.0," wants to romance Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone on the big screen. 

In a conversation with International Business Times India, Vicky named two Bollywood divas he would like to romance on the big screen in a romantic movie. The "Masaan" actor called Deepika and Alia gorgeous actresses and said that it would be an honour working with them.

"I think Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt are doing great in Bollywood. They are fantastic and gorgeous actresses and if that happens then it would be a great honour," Vicky told IBTimes India when asked about romancing Bollywood actresses in an out-and-out romantic film.

Interestingly, reports have been doing the rounds that Vicky has been approached for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next period drama "Padmavati," which features Deepika in the titular role and Ranveer Singh. Vicky has been approached to play the role of Deepika's husband King Ratan Singh of Chittor in "Padmavati."

"Bhansali is in the process of finalising the cast for Padmavati and has been meeting a few actors. He is looking for a relatively fresh talent to essay the role of king Rawal Ratan Singh, husband of the Mewar queen, and Vicky is one of the top contenders. Bhansali is quite impressed with the young actor's work and is keen to cast him as the king," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.

"Vicky has met Bhansali and discussed the project. He is keen to do this film since it is a big opportunity for him. However, things are yet to be finalised and an official announcement in this regard will be made soon," a source associated with the film told the tabloid.

Meanwhile, Vicky has been garnering praise for "Raman Raghav 2.0," which released on June 24. Vicky, who is just three films old, made his presence felt in the film industry with his performances in all the three movies – "Masaan," "Zubaan" and "Raman Raghav 2.0." He will soon start working on his fourth film produced by Aanand L Rai. "Manmarziyan," is a romantic film starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar.
