Shocking: Ranveer Singh got slapped

We all know Ranveer Singh is very passionate about his work. Whatever projects he takes up, he gets into the nerve of the character. He never mind growing hair, beard or muscles for his movies. He enacts every scene with heart and even never mind getting slapped 24 times. Yes, you heard it right. The ‘Ram Leela’ actor was slapped 24 times on the set of ‘Padmavati’.

While enacting a scene, veteran actor Raja Murad slapped Ranveer 24 times. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a perfectionist and he doesn’t give OK signal to any scene until and unless he is fully satisfied. So when Raza Murad shot a slapping scene with Ranveer Singh, he ended up hitting him 24 times.

Bhansali was not initially convinced by the way Raza Murad slapped Ranveer. He wanted the scene to be more flawless and after 24 retakes, he got the shot correct. The result is that Ranveer was left with red face.

In 'Padmavati', Deepika Padukone essays the titular role of Rani Padmavati while Ranveer Singh features as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh. The film is slated to release in November this year.
