After a great struggle, Padmaavat got its release date and finally, it is in the theatres and people are appreciating the work of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ranveer Singh. Karni Sena had made it very difficult for the movie to hit in theatres but things after sometimes started coming to rest.
Rajput Karni Sena had threatened to chop off the Deepika Padukone’s nose to protect their beloved Queen Padmavati’s pride. So after this news Deepika’s alleged boyfriend Ranveer Singh was filled with anger and wanted to speak out on the issue.
“I was filled with rage. There’s no doubt about that. I had a very strong urge to act out, to speak out, but I was given strict instructions not to. And I had to respect that because I was not at the forefront of this fight,” Ranveer told India Today in an interview.
“It’s the prerogative of the producers, of the director. If they were explicitly telling me that me saying something or doing something is going to complicate things further, I don’t want to complicate their lives. I want to do my bit to make sure that this film gets made and it gets released. If this is what they are asking me to do, I have to abide by that,” he added.
The actors also revealed that how he channelled all the aggression of him into his character Alauddin Khilji. “I could choose to act out destructively but I chose not to. I channelled it and I put all of it into my performance. Whatever you may feel after watching this performance is born out of having felt a certain way,” he said.
The movie has earned more than Rs 231 crore and Ranveer says that it is a tight slap on the fringe group.”Eventually, these perpetrators have lost. The film has won, Mr Bhansali has won. It’s a victory, the way this film is celebrated not just in our country but across the world. The kind of numbers it is posting is an indicator of widespread audience acceptance, approval and validation. I am very happy, especially for Mr Bhansali, because he has been through the most,” Ranveer said.
