After continuing it's royal run at the ticket windows even in the second week, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat recorded a huge drop in its box office collections. I would have liked to do a slightly less exhausting and emotionally draining film. "I think he's reacting to that", Ranveer was quoted as saying. When someone has the ability to write the content of some quality, then actors will do it. I am the hero of a Bhansali film, the numbers are going nuts, all is good.

Padmaavat is made at an estimated budget of Rs170-180 crore and was screened across 3500 theatres in India. The actor said that he has taken a lot of efforts to get into the skin of the character.

"There are very few films, written today, which are worthy of two big actors".

Earlier too, Deepika was gifted with a gorgeous silk saree after the release of Bajirao Mastani. I am actually very overwhelmed by the response because Mehrunisa, I knew, has a very special part. "So, I knew it was a small but major role". But, the character (Meherunisa, played by Hydari) had that strength to give it back.

"In every scene, her character and how she says so much in very few words is handsome. So, their expression was like, 'Is she our daughter?' I saw their expression and they were both brimming and glowing with pride".

It might be hard for Padmaavat to touch Rs250-crore mark in its domestic business for come this Friday Akshay Kumar's Pad Man is due to hit the theatres. It stars Deepika Padukone in the titular role of Rani Padmavati while Shahid Kapoor plays her on-screen husband Maharawal Ratan Singh.
