Watch Padmaavat's new song Binte Dil here:
Those of you, who haven't watched the film, Ranveer Singh played Alauddin Khilji - a bisexual ruler - who was gifted Malik Kafur, a prominent eunuch of Afghani descent, as a slave. Talking about his role, Ranveer Singh told mid-day that the bisexuality factor added another layer to Khilji's complex personality.
Talking about the song, Jim told Scroll.in, "All I did was try to match the emotion in the extremely soaring lyrics voiced by Arijit Singh, and as Sanjay sir once told me after he heard the song: lip syncing to this is an actors' nightmare."
Padmaavat is a 13th-century epic period-drama based on the narration of Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The film was released on January 25 and has earned more than Rs. 150 crore.
