Ranveer Singh is probably going to find it hard to live down the vile image of the violent invader Allaudin Khilji, who he’s playing in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.
The actor reportedly goes at his diabolic character’s unscrupulous hijinks with the relish of a carnivore attacking a juicy mutton leg. So complete was Ranveer’s transformation into an evil force that the actor’s behavioural pattern began to change entirely.
“On location, and on the sets, Ranveer grew rude, withdrawn, and abrupt in his responses, even to SLB. The fact that he was not allowed to communicate with his close friend and alleged girlfriend Deepika Padkuone made it worse. He was cranky and unfriendly,” reveals a source.
And this was when it was suggested that Ranveer consult a therapist. “The evil that Ranveer was portraying in Padmavati really affected his personality. And a suggestion was made that he see a therapist. Ranveer considered the suggestion, but ultimately decided to sort out the chaos in his mind space on his own. He’s out of it now, but Ranveer has sworn never to play a villain again. At least not for a very long time.” the source adds.
