When speaking about his role as the Rajput King in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical epic, Shahid expressed his happiness with the kind of response he has received. He said, “Honestly, it’s not the most author-backed role in the film. So taking up such a role and getting appreciations for that, is an amazing moment.”
Apart from Shahid, Ranveer Singh will also be awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for his stupendous portrayal as the ruthless and barbaric Sultan Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati.
On the work front, Shahid is currently shooting for his upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu which also stars Shraddha Kapoor opposite him.
