While playing intense characters, a few players tend to invest in a part of their real selves into the portrait.
They're known to become so profoundly involved in the scenes that it brings them a while to shake out of it after the director calls 'cut'.
Ranveer Singh has created room for himself in this category. While working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Bajirao Mastani', he had reportedly locked himself up in a room to gear up to play Peshwa Bajirao Bhalad. With 'Padmavati', in which he plays Sultan Alauddin Khilji, he's got a few notches higher.
A source near to the project added, "Ranveer refrained from making unnecessary conversations with anyone close to him.
The actor didn't want to be deflected, even momentarily, while tallying the final touches to his face. And after getting completely ready, he would walk out of his van, with the body language and attitude that his character, Khiji, demanded. The only person who was kept out of the diktat was obviously his director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali."
