After Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor’s explosive looks as Rani Padmini and Maharawal Ratan Singh from Padmavati, Ranveer Singh is here in the avatar of Alauddin Khilji to set your hearts racing.
Looking pure royalty and fierce at the same time, Ranveer is giving us more reasons to be impatient for Padmavati’s release. His kohled eyes, the long tresses and the vicious look are all adding up to the rugged look of his character of Alauddin Khilji. Going by the latest posters, the character of Bollywood’s live wire seems to have all the abilities to be touted as one of the most iconic antagonists of Hindi film industry.
Like his every role, Ranveer did all that it takes to get into the skin of his character. He locked himself up in his apartment, prepped and stayed in the headspace for weeks. To play Alauddin Khilji, a menacing, cruel anti-hero in Sanjay Bhansali’s directorial, Ranveer explored such hidden depths of negativity that he has actually had to see a psychiatrist to get back to ‘normal’. We must say, after Bajirao Mastani and Lootera, Ranveer has pushed the envelop for this one too.
And after superhits like Bajirao Mastani and Goliyon Ki Rasleela – Ramleela, we expect no less from this venture of the talented actor. It not only brings the iconic trio of Deepika, Ranveer and Sanjay Leela Bhansali together but also has Shahid Kapoor. And there is no doubt that these three stellar actors are going to paint magic on screen with this period drama.
