Shahid Kapoor has earlier expressed his love for Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the opportunity to work with him. Kapoor will be seen in Bhansali’s Padmavati alongside Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Aditi Rao Hydari. He expressed his love for Bhansali yet again and also said how much he had loved Bajirao Mastani. Here’s what he said:
“It’s an intense, romantic and a very looked-forward-to film for various reasons. I think it’s a labour of love of Bhansali. I had gone mad on Twitter after watching his last film Bajirao Mastani, appreciating everyone, and didn’t know I’d be part of his next film. It’s awesome to be working with someone whose work I have admired and loved, especially in the recent past. It is a great cast and going to be a huge film. I am really excited, but I want to underplay it, so I am trying to do that right now.”
He added, “I hope when people see the film, they realise that the heart of the film and intent of the film is very good. This country and the people who live in it, and specially the area we are talking about in the film, will be glorified and shown beautifully. I play a Rajput king and my character, I feel, will be admired by people.”
Padmavati releases this November!
