At a recent event, Shahid Kapoor responded to the incident and if it will affect the film.
He says,” I think we should continue shooting for the film and we will be continuing to shoot soon. People should wait to see the film.” Shahid plays the role of Raja Ratan Singh in the film and even went through a physical transformation for the same.
He also spoke about gaining weight for his role,” When you’re playing a King, you need to have a personality. Sanjay Sir wants me to be a little muscular and full. Just to look more muscular. No fat. I’m playing a warrior who has a very strong personality.” We can’t wait to check out Shahid’s look as Raja Ratan Singh. We already know how Ranveer is going to look as Alauddin Khilji. Shahid even revealed when he will share a picture of his daughter, Misha with everyone.
Shahid had even reacted to the Padmavati incident on Twitter saying,” Very very sad. Words do fall short and feel too little to express feelings. Violence is unacceptable. This incident has shocked me.” This was followed by more tweets by the actor about the situation. He said,” We need to look deep within as a society, as a country, as a people. Where are we headed.”
He clarified the director’s stance and added how there are no sequences that would outrage anyone, “Sanjay bhansali is a film maker who the country should be proud of. You will know when u see #padmavati the dignity he brings to it.” And concluded the tweet by saying how he regretted not being around, “And my only regret is that I wasn’t by his side when this happened.”
