The movie Padmavati is all set to release on December 1. With the first looks out of Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor playing Rani Padmavati and Ratan Singh respectively, Ranveer Singh is not far behind.
Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of Alauddin Khilji, the cruel Sultanate of Delhi. We must say Ranveer Singh is all slaying in this cruel & shrewd personality!
Here’s the first look!
You will need some more to recover from the trauma..
He does look like an epitome of cruelty! Considering the history of Alauddin Khilji, we won’t be more surprised to see him playing the role of a negative character in such a realistic manner that we would hate him to the core after seeing the film.
Talking about his role in Padmavati, he said, “What a guy! Can’t believe he does the things he does, he is an appalling human being. You can’t even call him a human being, call him a ‘haivaan’.” Adding to it further, he said, “You would love to hate him. You will be like, ‘I hate this person how can he be this way, how can anybody be this way, is there no compassion.’ He’s a hard guy.”
Well, we do know Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the most hard working directors, he ensures that his actors also leave no stone unturned while performing in the movie. Ranveer Singh’s transformation has been the talk of the town for a while. He was seen sporting a beard with surma first along with looking all beefed up.
However, recently he was sported clean shaved which apparently is shoot for the young Khilji look in the movie. It has also been reported that Ranveer Singh has been seeing a psychiatrist to get back to real life. Apparently he got so much hooked into the Khilji character’s negativity, he needed some help to cope up and get out of the character.
In case you missed, here are the first looks of Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor!
The movie has definitely set up our expectations way too high now. Starting from the star casts transformation and look, to Ranveer Singh playing the role of bisexual personality with Jim Sarbh (he plays the role of Malik Kafur), to the issues and controversies faced by the team on the sets while shooting.
We eagerly waiting for the movie to release. Here’s hoping that this wonderful star cast will shine out at the box office this year!
