Actor Ranveer Singh, who launched his first solo poster from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Mastani” here on Wednesday, said acting in the period film was tough and it has had a personal and professional impact on him.
“It was a very physically demanding film, so I worked hard for that ! Even acting was very tough for this film… I am really happy that I got this character,” Ranveer, who plays the 18th century Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I, said here.
“‘Bajirao Mastani’ changed me a lot personally and professionally. It made me a stronger and wiser person,” he added.
Asked if there’s any similarities between his real life and his reel life in “Bajirao Mastani”, he said: “Bajirao ki life mein bahut drama hai (There’s a lot of drama in Bajirao’s life).”
The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, and is slated to release on December 18 — the same date as Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s much-awaited romantic entertainer “Dilwale”.
“I’m nervous about my film. Bhansali sir had been wanting to make this film since 12 to 15 years.”
