Shahid Kapoor has talked about his equation with actors Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone on the sets of Padmaavat. He was present on Karan Johar‘s popular chat show, Koffee With Karan, when he shared his experience of working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others on the big historical drama. Shahid mentioned that even though he had a wonderful time while filming the movie, his relationship with Ranveer-Deepika and SLB was strictly professional.
Shahid said, “My relationship status with most of the industry is zilch. Honestly, Deepika, Ranveer and Sanjay sir never became a part of my friend circle as such. I think it was more a professional thing. And it’s not the status was different and it’s changed in any manner. We connected when we were working and now we don’t have any connection”. He also added that people feel threatened by each other at some level in the industry and said, “It’s really a big film and the stakes were very high for everybody. So everybody wanted to have their A-game on. Everybody was doing everything it takes to kind of be in the center of the limelight. I’m sure everybody felt a bit threatened by each other at some level, it’s natural”.
The actor also explained that working on Padmaavat wasn’t a ‘smooth ride’ for him and they all weren’t ‘throwing love at each other’ but it was a good experience altogether. “I had a great time during the film, and of course, there are many small things which happen when it’s a multi star-cast film. And I wouldn’t say that it was a smooth ride and we were all throwing love at each other. But looking back, I feel it’s an amazing film in my filmography and I feel like it’s great that I did it, it’s all good”, said Shahid.
