Actor Ranveer Singh says he felt pushed against the wall with the many roadblocks ahead of the release of ‘Padmaavat’ and its long gestation period, a rage that propelled his portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in the film.
The film, which released on January 25 with multiple disclaimers following nationwide protests, found itself in trouble from the very beginning with its sets being vandalised twice in Rajasthan and Maharashtra.
“There was a lot of anxiety surrounding the shooting. Whatever untoward incident happened, it made me very, very angry. Ever since the first incident on the sets… I was raging from inside. But I chose not to act out in a destructive way. I channeled it and used it constructively. I put it into my performance,” the actor told PTI in an interview.
The much-debated film is already a blockbuster, and Ranveer’s portrayal of Khilji has been singled out for particular praise. More than happiness, however, Ranveer says he feels a sense of relief.
The costume drama was not easy to shoot, says the star. The many delays led to the film being shot in almost one go, in 40 plus days.
“Apart from what was happening, the actual shooting process was difficult due to the delays. I was shooting for more than 40 days straight, which is unheard of in a costume drama, especially on a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. It is draining at every level, physically mentally, emotionally.”happy wheels
