Ranveer got Slapped 24 times by Raja Murad in Padmaavat
Sep 2, 2017
Ranveer Singh, who plays the role of Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, got slapped 24 times by Raja Murad for a scene. Raja Murad, who plays Jalaluddin Khilji, had to slap Ranveer for a confrontation scene between them. Although he was supposed to slap him just once, the perfectionist director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was not satisfied in one take. The scene took 24 takes to achieve the kind of perfection SLB wanted. Poor Ranveer’s cheeks had to bear the brunt.
Padmaavat is slated to release by November end and features Ranveer Singh with his real-life girlfriend Deepika Padukone, who is playing Rani Padmavati, and Shahid Kapoor, who plays the role of Maharaja Rawal Singh, Padmavati’s husband. The film is being jointly produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
