Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh as the central characters of the magnum opus. Ever since the film has been released, the critics and the audiences have praised Ranveer Singh a lot for his portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in the epic drama. But, it seems like the appreciation of Ranveer has not gone down so well with Shahid Kapoor.
While speaking to the media, Shahid Kapoor said “Which actor would not wish to play a character like Khilji in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film? You know, once on ‘Koffee with Karan’, Ranveer said he would have done my role in ‘Kaminey’ better than me… I would have done Khilji differently,”
When asked how differently exactly, he said, “Firstly, I do not want to get into those details. Always remember, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the hero of all his films and us actors come second,”
“So whether it is the loud and larger-than-life character of Khilji or the subtleness of Ratan Singh, everything was governed by Sanjay Sir. So, this is his vision of his. What I just said about performing differently, is because we are two different actors and our style of acting is different,”
