Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for his grand filmmaking process. Padmaavat shows his dedication and passion for the movie. The leading casts Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor had to go through a lot to play the roles of Alauddin Khili and Maharawal Ratan Singh respectively.
Talking about his character, Ranveer Singh had once said, â€œMy brain had turned into mush, my body had turned into pulp, I had no feeling in my muscles. I kept pushing but physically, I was breaking. But when you have your back against the wall, you need to keep digging deeper. I try to be as honest to my craft as I can possibly be. The dark person that Khilji was, I had to become that from the inside. I had to feel all those things and that can be unhealthy.â€
He further added,
â€œThe shooting process was non-stop. I would put on the make-up for two hours and shoot for 12-14 hours straight and repeat it the next day. I lost touch with myself. I realized that something was wrong. I had become uneasy, unstable. So I first confided in my mother and my best friend. They started spending time with me after the shoot. They brought me back to myself. I was lucky to have that kind of support.â€
