All Is Well Between Shahid Kapoor And Ranveer Singh; ‘I am secure actor’, says Shahid

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat is doing excellent business at the box office. The period drama film is receiving a tremendous amount of love form the audience. They are going to the theater in large numbers. The lead actors Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh are getting praise from everyone including critics.

Shahid Kapoor has established himself as one of the mainstream actors with a range of roles in the movies like Kaminey, Haider, Udta Punjab and now Padmaavat. The actor is receiving rave reviews from critics as well as fans for the portrayal of Nobel King Maharawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat. His chemistry with Deepika Padukone was one of the highlights of the movie.

In a recent interview with a leading daily, Shahid Kapoor talks about the reason behind taking up the role of Ratan Singh. He said, “I agreed to do it even before hearing the script. It wasn’t about the character I was playing. I did it because Sanjay Leela Bhansali said he can’t do this film without me. He couldn’t helm the movie on such a big scale if an actor of my calibre wasn’t on board. Doing a film in which the parallel characters are author-backed is like an enticing roller coaster ride. I didn’t mind it because I am a secure actor today. I had recently wrapped up Udta Punjab and Haider. So, I was confident.”

The actor further added,

“I am not jealous. I had to focus on my role. If I was bothered (with the attention given to other characters), my energy would have dissipated. There are many who, despite having the best roles, are insecure. No one put a gun to my head. If I am doing the film, I will with dignity. You don’t become stronger when things are served to you on a platter. You have to earn the tag.”
