It’s a like pattern norm, every time Ranveer Singh’s new movie hits the theatre, what follows subsequent is a bevy of people pouring praises and accolades on him from each corner. The same thing has happened with Padmaavat. while Sanjay Leela Bhansali is being praised for his direction extraordinaire, it’s Ranveer’s Alauddin Khilji, who is being mentioned the most.
According to numerous critics and people reviews, Even though he is playing a negative role Ranveer has managed to connect with the people at large because of his spectacular acting and ferocious aura.
Now, to attain what he did was not an easy feat. He revealed that to get into the skin of Khilji he went to a ‘dark place’ emotionally. talking about the identical with Indian Express, he stated,
“I took 21 days and locked myself up in my Goregaon house. I was completely isolated”.
Khilji was known for taking a unique liking toward Queen Padmini, to the extent of obsession. He further revealed:
“I kind of isolated myself, marinated into the character because I can’t relate to Alauddin Khilji, I can’t relate to that level of manipulativeness, greed, and ambition. I had to tap into dark experiences but his worldview is not something I can relate to also.”
“He is as much a creator of this character as I am. All credit to him. This is the most amount of direction I have taken from across these three films (Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ramleela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmaavat). He just knew what he wanted to do with Alauddin Khilji and was having so much fun doing it.”
The flip side of this precision to obtain absolute perfection for each character he plays is something that Ranveer described as a risky abyss:
“I have had some life experiences that were quite dark. I can’t reveal too much because it is too personal but it is the stuff I have brushed under the carpet so to speak. Stuff that I have buried in my conscience, that I had to dig out in order to play this character. And it was not always pretty, which validates my apprehension. I knew how deep I had to go into this rabbit hole. I would have had to go into this dark, black space. This abyss that could be dangerous for me. And it was.”
