Bollywood's Ranveer Singh is known for his method acting. The actor has been quite vocal about putting himself through pain and procedure to get into the feel of his character. And the same goes for his character of Alauddin Khilji who is a menacing and cruel antagonist in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus next, Padmavati.
Meanwhile a source revealed, “Ranveer has his friends and family worried. To play Alauddin Khilji, he has been researching and exploring extreme negativity. To become Khilji, he took the same route as he did to play Peshwa Bajirao. He locked himself up in his apartment, prepped and stayed in the head space for weeks. The film has also been shot for almost a year now, so sustaining the Khilji persona was very challenging. It affected his reactions and behavior towards people.”
Moreover on the sets of the film, Ranveer avoids any human contact in
order to stay into the emotions and expressions of his character. The actor has
reportedly been taking holidays post every schedule and has even bought himself
a luxury car to cheer up his mood. And now that nothing helped him enough,
Ranveer is seeing a psychiatrist to get over the negativity.
