Shahid Kapoor wants more muscle to look like an ancient warrior in ‘Padmavati’, and this need has prompted the actor to build a makeshift gym in his vanity van to be regular with his workout regime.
In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama, Shahid plays the role of Raja Ratan Singh, the husband of Padmavati.
Actress Deepika Padukone will be seen in the lead role as Padmavati.
According to a press release, the “Udta Punjab” star, who is shooting for the film at odd hours, was not having time to hit the gym and decided to create a personal workout space with basic equipments.
Shahid, 35, has been doing a lot of functional training and calisthenics. He is also on a strict diet to feed reality to the kindly character.
The shooting for the film, which also stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, is underway at a suburban Mumbai studio. – CINEWS
