As you read this, team Padmaavat is getting ready to celebrate the magnanimous success of the film and also ring in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 55th birthday. Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone amongst others will be present at the grand bash while Shahid Kapoor may not attend as per reports. And on an evening like this, we have chanced upon a very interesting trivia about the film which is making us LOL. Amongst other things, what got the most attention and accolades as well is Ranveer’s role of Alauddin Khilji.
But getting him give the perfect shot, or let’s say, for him to impress his director was a tough task. Yes, you read that right. Despite working with the actor in films like Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani, Bhansali didn’t spare him and never bothered to ask him for another take even when others on the sets thought that the shot was perfect. In fact, he lost his cool so many times on Ranveer Singh that people were worried that by the end of the film, there will be bad blood between the actor and director duo.
According to reports, some times in his frustration, Bhansali even told Ranveer, “Tumse na ho paayega, chalo ghar chalte hain.” For the actor to then deliver such a performance, with so much pressure and expectations from the director is nothing less than a feat.
The same report on Deccan Chronicle states that Deepika had it easier and never had to face the director’s wrath. All said and done, the movie has turned out to be an epic tale and continues to roar at the box office. While Ranveer and Deepika have said that they would love to work with SLB again, even the director has said that despite working with the pair thrice, he is not yet done with them. We hope to see many many more cinematic wonders from these three aces in the future.
