Shahid Kapoor says that, it is a very big film, very intense, romantic and a looked-forward-to film for various reasons.
Actor Shahid Kapoor who will be next seen in Padmavati says that the film is made with a very good intent and that he has not shot any scene that was changed. He also says that the people made a lot of presumptions about the movie and its filming.
The shooting of Padmavati was disturbed and disrupted as there was a romantic scene between Alahuddin Khilji and Rajput Queen Padmavati, Shahid says, “ According to me, I have not shot any scene which has been changed. I think there were a lot of presumptions about the film, and people were presuming about the scenes. The clarification has been given that no such scene is there in the film. I hope when people see this film, they will realize that the heart of the film and intent of the film is very good.”
He further said, “This country and the people who live in it, and specially the area we are talking about in the film, will be glorified and shown beautifully. I play a Rajput king and my character, I feel, will be admired by people. It’s an intense, romantic and a very looked-forward-to film for various reasons. I think it’s a labour of love of Bhansali. I had gone mad on Twitter after watching his last film (‘Bajirao Mastani’), appreciating everyone, and didn’t know I’d be part of his next film.”It’s awesome to be working with someone whose work I have admired and loved, especially in the recent past. It is a great cast and going to be a huge film. I am really excited, but I want to underplay it, so I am trying to do that right now.”
Padmavati is directed by the great Sanjay Leela Bhansali, also starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Aditi Rao Hydari in important roles.
Padmavati was the wife of Rana Rawal Ratan Singh, the ruler of Mewar. In 1303, as per history, Alauddin Khilji laid siege to the Chittor Fort in Rajputana motivated by his desire to capture the queen. The character of Rana Rawal Ratan Singh will be played by Shahid Kapoor and Alauddin Khilji will be played by Ranveer Singh.
