New Delhi: Deepika Padukone is extremely nervous for her upcoming film Padmavati, like really. She told news agency IANS: "It's been a while since I have been so nervous. I can't remember the time I was so nervous. I think it is the function of the fact that in all the movies that I've done, I feel there is something (different) about this one. And it is not from the heart, it is not from the head, it is from the gut. It is coming from a completely different place." Deepika Padukone plays Rani Padmini of Chittor, who performed jauhar when Alauddin Khilji (played by Ranveer Singh) invaded her fort after defeating her husband, Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor).
