Shahid On His Padmaavat Role: It was the biggest risk and I knew my role was an underdog

Shahid On His Padmaavat Role: It was the biggest risk and I knew my role was an underdog
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has hit the theatres on 25th January and it is doing wonders on the box-office since then.

Well, everyone was praising Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s for their respective roles in the film. However, Shahid Kapoor got sidelined and every thought that Ranveer and Deepika’s roles got overpowered. But when the movie released, people actually praised Shahid for essaying such a powerful role.

Shahid, who took a big risk on playing a parallel lead opposite two characters which were more dominating than his, said, “It was one of the biggest risks of my career to take a role like this where for one-and-a-half years nobody knew what it is… So many people had told me why are you doing this film. I knew my character is an underdog in the film, I’m happy that the hero of the film is getting so much love.”

He further said, “Out of the three characters, people know a lot about Padmavati, about Alauddin Khilji, but nobody knows about Rawal Ratan Singh. Now you know his journey was also so spectacular.”

“Everyone is talking about it being the top grosser but it’s a great film. We have come a long way, journey of a year and a half… There was a point we were wondering will it be able to release properly. It’s been a turbulent and emotionally draining journey. I feel validated that the film has come out and people have said so many beautiful things about it.”

Well, Shahid with his terrific performance and strong screen presence proved that he was also the main part of the film and no role is big or small.
