Ranveer Singh created history at the box office by essaying an out and out dark role of Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. He totally went for the kill there and won a lot of accolades for his performance in the movie. The film too did a great business and he became the talking point of the industry. But everyone would agree what a huge risk this was considering that not all Bollywood leading men are comfortable donning the role of a grey character. Ranveer’s risk paid off and he stood out as a formidable actor of today’s generation but this was a difficult process for him.
He revealed recently that it really took a toll on him to channelize all the evil energy on screen. He said that he went to his past and tapped on to something very dark and the process continued till he was done playing Khilji. He also said that he wanted to do a comedy film and was not even up for an intense period film. But well we are glad he took the plunge because the rest is history.
