According to a source close to Ranveer, the actor has had his quota of playing an intense, negative character for now. “Ranveer is overwhelmed by the response he’s been getting for his performance in Padmaavat. That said, playing Alauddin was so consuming and exhausting that he doesn’t want to do a role similar to it in intensity and character for some time now.
