Padmaavat: Ranveer Singh REACTS to threats to chop off Deepika Padukone's nose

Deepika Padukone was recently mired with controversies because of her latest release Padmaavat. The lady was seen playing the role of Rajput queen Padmaavati in the movie which was said to be distorting historical facts.

Several fringe groups protested over the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial. But the protests against the movie stooped to lowest levels when the protesters threatened to chop off Deepika's nose.

While Deepika was unfazed by the threats, her beau Ranveer Singh, who played the role of Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat, was quite miffed and admitted to be 'filled with rage'.

While talking to India Today, Ranveer stated, "I was filled with rage. There's no doubt about that. I had a very strong urge to act out, to speak out, but I was given strict instructions not to. And I had to respect that, because I was not at the forefront of this fight."

He further added, "It's the prerogative of the producers, of the director. If they were explicitly telling me that me saying something or doing something is going to complicate things further, I don't want to complicate their lives. I want to do my bit to make sure that this film gets made and it gets released. If this is what they are asking me to do, I have to abide by that."

Ranveer also stated that while it was a difficult time he chose to focus on his character and give it his best performance.

"I could choose to act out destructively but I chose not to. I channelled it and I put all of it into my performance. Whatever you may feel after watching this performance is born out of having felt a certain way," Singh was quoted as saying.

Interestingly, Padmaavat turned out to be a big hit at the box office and managed to cross Rs 200 crore in its second week itself. In fact, it has even become the highest-grossing film of Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's careers.
