After Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor’s explosive looks as Rani Padmini and Maharawal Ratan Singh were revealed recently, it is now Ranveer Singh’s first look as Alauddin Khilji that has set his fans’ hearts racing. The Ram-Leela star took to Instagram to share the poster of the upcoming movie and he can be seen as the pure personification of royalty. His kohled eyes, the long tresses and the vicious look are all adding up to the rugged look of his character Alauddin Khilji.
As per Indian Express report, the Bollywood star did everything to get into the character. He locked himself up in his apartment, prepped himself and stayed indoors for weeks, the report added. Interestingly, to play the role of Alauddin Khilji, a menacing, cruel anti-hero, Ranveer delved so deep into negativity that he had to see a psychiatrist get back to normal, added the report.
