But post Padmaavat release, people are loving Shahid Kapoor aka Maha Rawal Ratan Singh and Deepika Padukone aka Rani Padmavati’s on-screen chemistry; it was mesmerising. Speaking of their on-screen chemistry, Shahid, told an online portal, “Well, the movie had less of romance and it had to say a lot many other things too – so we didn’t have much time to linger and ponder over it. But, that’s the nature of the film. Deepika is spectacular and we have waited for it and now that people have loved us, it’s great.” Also Read - Ranveer Singh's 83 To Release in June, Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi in April, Here's All We Know!

Shahid also spoke about how his wife Mira Rajput supported him during his bad time when the Karni Sena wanted to ban the film and his one and half years of hard work was at stake. Shahid said, “Mira has been the constant support throughout. It’s character in the film that needs a lot from as an actor. I was like the new entrant in the team which has already worked before. To the fact, the film had to deal with before it actually came out. There was so much written about the film before it was seen. It was a tiring journey and Mira has been a support system and like a wall for me. I couldn’t have done it without her.” Watch this space for further updates.
