Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been in news ever since it has been pronounced. The star cast Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and post the trailer, admirers have been going gaga over his character.
Without a dialogue in the trailer, Ranveer has succeeded to influence all his fans and the audiences. Lately, Ranveer took to Instagram to finally tell GOODBYE to Alauddin Khilji. He posted, “And it’s a wrap! Goodbye Alauddin. 1 year and a few weeks later, I bid thee farewell. May your restless soul find its peace… #Khilji.”
Talking about his role in Padmavati, Ranveer revealed a tabloid, “It was a very difficult character to play. I am a people pleaser, admittedly. I like to spread cheer and laughter. I like to keep the atmosphere light – even if it means making stupid jokes and acting silly and crass. But, when I became Alauddin Khilji for the movie, there’s no trace of that person. Some actors are that way, where the external starts to affect the internal. At some point during filming, everybody realized that at one point in the morning you’ll have Ranveer and the rest of the day will be Khilji. My whole energy changed. Which is good, because at least I know I’m doing an honest job in the film. But, yeah, I’m almost done now and I have to say what I told myself holds true to some extent. All the darkness has been lived out, it’s been addressed. It’s almost like therapy.”
Padmavati is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
