It’s been over a year since Padmaavat released, but Ranveer Singh’s performance as the menacing Alauddin Khilji is still fresh in people’s minds. Sanjay Leela Bhansali got the best out of the actor, who stole the show despite playing a despicable character.
The actor is currently neck-deep in promotions of his next film. In an interview to Bollywood Hungama, he was asked if he would be willing to play a character as dark as that of Khilji once again in his career. He told the entertainment news portal, “Probably not. Not anytime soon, not on the periphery. I can’t go back there. Touchwood, I am very blessed that right now, I am going through a very good time. I am very happy and happily married. I am being showered with love and affection from my wife. I am in a very warm and fuzzy, happy space in life.”
“To be honest, when Khilji was offered to me, I was happy even then. But, I was prepared to go down that rabbit hole. Now, I am not prepared to do that again because having done that before, I know how deep and dark it is. I don’t want to do that? Not anytime soon and hopefully never. I will do this mercy on myself and not go down that path again,” he added.
