Acting With Ranveer Singh In "Padmaavat" Helped Me: Ujjwal Chopra

New Delhi; "Padmaavat" starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, featured actor Ujjwal Chopra as "Gora Singh" who is all set to star in a negative role in an upcoming show Hankaar. The actor told news agency IANS that sharing screen with Ranveer, who portrayed the role of Alauddin Khilji in "Padmaavat" helped him in approaching his role of Z in Hankaar differently. He told news agency IANS, "It was enthralling to watch Ranveer Singh play a menacing character with dedication and honesty. As an underworld don, Z, too is devoid of any compassion. Acting alongside Ranveer in Padmaavat aided me in approaching Z from a different perspective."

The actor also talked about his role in the movie "Z is quite different from what I have played so far. He is mysterious, dangerous and quite the opposite of the courageous Gora Singh. Both roles are poles apart and extremely challenging to play. Playing these characters helped me in discovering my own strengths as an actor."

Movie "Padmaavat", was helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and is one of the highest-grossing films of 2018. The movie faced several protests and opposition. Ranveer's acting as Alauddin Khilji impressed everyone.

Earlier, Ranveer had told him not to play a negative role. The actor who took the role of Alauddin Khilji as a challenge said, "When I was offered "Padmaavat", most people were of the opinion that a hero should not play the anti-hero. But I believed otherwise. I saw Khilji as a challenge for me, as an actor. And I wanted to take the challenge up. I took a big risk with this character and it's wonderful to see my gamble pay off," he told PTI.
