Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is a devoted actor and he puts in his 100% to the character he has to deliver onscreen. The actor stepped into the shoes of Maharawal Ratan Singh for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-anticipated movie Padmavati.
In a chat with a daily, Shahid shared his experience of filming sword fight sequences. He told, “Sword fighting is a very defined skill… We’ve done it in a very raw manner. As raw as it could get.”
Shahid revealed the armour would weigh something between 30-40 kilos and while shooting for action sequences, he lost 4 kgs in just 5 days – “I lost four kilos in five days.” He went on to add, “I don’t find physical challenges as challenging as I find understating the psyche of the character that you are meant to play and be true to him and be able to find all the layers in him.”
“I had to draw from my instinct and from what Sanjay sir had conceived in the script,” he told.
