Hope audience gets Rawal Ratan Singh: Shahid Kapoor

Mumbai, Dec 7: Actor Shahid Kapoor, one of the three lead actors of controversial film “Padmavati”, hopes the audience understands his part as Rawal Ratan Singh. He feels it’s a character that would make people want to be “better” in today’s time.

The actor stressed on the need for inspiring characters while discussing his role as Rani Padmavati’s husband and a warrior king Rawal Ratan Singh in “Padmavati” with GQ India for December 2017 issue, a statement said.

“I remember when ‘Gladiator’ came out and Russell Crowe played Maximus, the character felt too good to be true. But it inspired me so much. That was a strong reference for me because I wondered how you play a character who is so noble and good, and make him connect with people today,” Shahid said.

“Sometimes cinema has the power to make us aspire to be something better. Of course, there’s a lot of value in playing something that’s real; I’m coming from ‘Udta Punjab’, where I played a coked-out, crazy pop star – not at all the kind of guy you would want to be, not even the kind of guy you would want to be in a room with.

“With him, I wondered how to get people to understand someone so off-the-hook, this free radical jumping all over the place. But people got him. I hope they get Rawal Ratan Singh as well. He’s extremely powerful, but always steady in all kinds of high-pressure situations.

“I’ve always admired people who can do that. We’re living in a time where we need to be inspired by characters who make us want to be better, because there’s a lot happening in the world.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s attempt to bring alive the story of Rani Padmavati on the silver screen with his movie “Padmavati” hasn’t gone down well with Hindu groups backed by the BJP. It also features Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in pivotal roles.

“Padmavati” is being slammed for alleged distortion of historical facts about the Rajput queen. The film was scheduled to release on December 1, but it was deferred.

Shahid also spoke about how Ratan Singh protects his wife from invader Alauddin Khilji, essayed by Ranveer.

He said: “The most difficult part was that he is the least known among the three characters. There are several gaps in our knowledge, and it was up to me to fill them appropriately. It was important to understand what type of king I was playing – we’ve had great kings, we’ve had terrible kings, we’ve had blunderers, kings who’ve become saints.

“Ratan Singh was a warrior king who falls in love with this exceptionally beautiful woman. They get married and are very happy together when another man (Alauddin Khilji) enters the picture. It’s a story about a husband and wife, but also a king and a queen.”

Sunny Deol Dharmendra

Mumbai, Aug 21: Actor Sunny Deol says he is interested in making a biopic on his father and iconic actor Dharmendra, provided he gets a good writer and director to weave the story of the veteran’s life in an interesting manner.

Asked if he is interested to make a biopic on his father, Sunny told the media here: “I think making biopic is a trend that is going on. It is a good idea and would be nice to make a film on him (father Dharmendra) if only we can get a good writer and director to make the film.”

“It cannot be random. There should be a writer who would invest time on it. It is not going to be that easy because my father will be involved in it. Since everyone knows everything about him, it must be put out in a nice way. Research will not be a problem, because my father is there to share the story,” added the “Border” fame actor.

So, would he be interested to play the character of the legend Dharmendra on-screen?

“I really have not given it a thought. I know the resemblance is there. It is not only in me, but my son can also play the younger part of the character. But everything is dependent on the story,” said Sunny, who has worked with his father and brother Bobby Deol for their upcoming film “Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se”.
