Ranveer Singh Cuts His Hair For his Upcoming Film 'Gully Boy'

Exclusive! Ranveer Singh talks about playing Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati

He referred to the movie PK, starring Aamir Khan, and said the movie should never have been allowed to release, and that it instead went on to make more than Rs 500 crore because of the "lethargy and casual attitude of today's youth".

The ambitious historical film, which tells the story of the valour of the Rajputs and also features Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, will release on 1 December. However, Ranveer says that he is playing the role of an anti-hero. From the time I directed my first film Khamoshi: The Musical, I've fought against all odds. "It's a despicable character".

"Old me", the "Bajirao Mastani" star captioned one of his image. "But in this case, if they hate my character, the hate will be transferred to me too". Speaking to ANI, Singh at a Diwali Milan programme said, "If Padmavati has distorted history, Sanjay Leela Bhansali will have to pay the price". Ranveer says that he has to play the negative character then he will only be doing with the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Mumbai: Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has wrapped up the shoot for this years most eagerly awaited Bollywood film Padmavati, which has been mired in controversy. He feels that he is an indebted to him as an artist because he helped him in pushing his boundaries and got the best out of him.

Last week, the BJP approached the Election Commission seeking its intervention to stop the release of "Padmavati" without a pre-release screening by the Kshatriya community, saying "distortion of facts" in the movie will hurt their sentiments.
