Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh hit screens on January 25. As expected Ranveer is receiving a lot of appreciation for his portrayal of the evil Alauddin Khilji in the period drama. Soon after the film released when Shahid was asked why he chose the film he was quoted saying, “I’m used to being the favourite of all my filmmakers. This was the first time that I was like an outsider. When you work with a team that has worked together, you are kind of an outsider and it takes time for you to break through that barrier”.

When Ranveer was recently asked by DNA about Kapoor’s outsider comment, he gave a befitting reply to clear the air. Ranveer said, “To be honest, I did my best to welcome him and did whatever I could do to be a supportive co-actor. But I think it’s got to do with the genre as well. I think ‘Padmaavat’ is Shahid’s first costume drama and a costume drama has its own set of unique challenges which I had faced during Bajirao Mastani and it takes some time to get adapted to it. I think he’s reacting to that.” Also Read - No Link With Sushant Singh Rajput! Bingo Releases Official Statement After Fans Trend 'Boycott Bingo' Over ad Featuring Ranveer Singh
