Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has emerged as the box office king, thanks to all the rage that has been guiding the ship to sail through amidst of all the controversies.
But, although Bhansali was undoubtedly the captain of the ship, it was PRIMARILY Ranveer Singh who was entertaining us throughout through his menacing alter-ego, Alauddin Khilji.
But, did you know that Singh became so involved in his character that he actually began scaring his co-stars?
One such case is of Bhoomi actress Aditi Rao Hydari, who played Meherunisa, the wife to Singh’s Khilji.
Speaking about the scenes where Hydari’s Meherunisa got to see the evil side of Khilji, she said, “Ranveer Singh is an actor that you would love to react to. There were times when he used to look at me and I would flinch because he was scary. But, the character (Meherunisa, played by Hydari) had that strength to give it back. I really love how Sanjay sir writes his characters and as you rightly said, there was vulnerability and daintiness in her character. You could see the innocence in her eyes, but she is a strong girl. She doesn’t speak much, but her lines did make an impact. “
Well, only she knows how that look would have been like.
Who has impressed you the most in the magnum opus? Let us know!
