Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have collaborated in three films till now —Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and the latest one being Padmaavat. Each of these three films performed exceptionally well at the Box Office. Their camaraderie has only grown over the years with each of these films. Thus there’s a good chance that a fourth person in their company may find it difficult initially to find his ground and become a part of the group. That’s exactly what happened with Shahid Kapoor when he started shooting for Padmaavat with the trio. In a recent interview with DNA he admitted to feeling left out at first.
Speaking to the leading daily, he said, “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.” But the actor has no complains as he had a really fun time shooting for the movie and enjoyed being pushed to the limit by SLB. As he added, “The best thing about Sanjay sir is that he is ruthless in his creative desire. He is extremely intuitive towards artistes and his craft. And he doesn’t care whether it is 4 am or midnight, or whether it is 82 days or 100 days or what the cost of one day’s shooting is or if someone is emotionally spent.” (ALSO READ : Shahid Kapoor Would Have Not Done Padmaavat If It Hadn’t Been For THIS Person)
