Alauddin Khilji-1

“I AM FRIGHTENED. I’M PORTRAYING AN ‘ANTI-HERO.’ ONLY WHEN I WATCH THE FILM, WILL I BE ABLE TO ASSESS MY ROLE? IT’S-A RISKY MOVE FOR ME. THAT’S WHY I TOOK SO MUCH TIME TO SIGN THE FILM”.

He further said about this big t jump over he has taken in the film,

“FOR AN ORDINARY MAN TO TAKE A DECISION LIKE THIS AT THIS INT OF TIME IS HAZARDOUS. IT IS A HATEFUL CHARACTER. HE’S MEAN, AND ONE OF MY SENIORS, WHO I BELIEVE IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ACTORS OF ALL TIME IN BOLLYWOOD ADVISED ME TO BE CAREFUL.

SHE TOLD ME THAT THE INDIAN AUDIENCE IS SIMPLE AND IF THEY LIKE A ROLE, THE LOVE WILL TRANSFER TO THE ONE WHO PLAYED IT. SO IN THIS CASE, IF THEY HATE MY ROLE, THE HATE WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO ME AS WELL”.

Moreover, Ranveer Singh went on to say that why he selected Khilji (from hero to villain):

“I FELT THAT OF HAD TO PLAY NEGATIVE ROLE IF HAD TO BE WITH DIRECTOR SANJAY LEELA BHANSALI. Also, I CAN’T SAY NO TO HIM. IF I HAVE ANY BEEN STANDING NOW; IT’S BECAUSE OF HIS FILMS. HE GAVE ME THE FILM “GOLIYO KI RASSLEELA-RAM LEELA.

IT IS THAT FILM AT A TIME WHEN MY CAREER WAS NOT GOING GREAT. HE HAD ALSO GIVEN ME TO PLAY BAJIRAO IN BAJIRAO MASTANI, A ROLE THAT WAS AHEAD OF MY YEARS, I’M GRATEFUL TO HIM AS AN ARTIST. HE HAS PUBLISHED MY BOUNDARIES AND GOT BEST OUT OF ME”.
