On media reports which said the actor was gaining weight for the
film, Shahid clarified, "Since I am playing a Rajput warrior in the
film, keeping the time period and look in mind, Sanjay sir
suggested to gain muscle to portray such personality. So yes, I am
gaining muscle, but not fat for my role in Padmavati."
The film had faced protest during the shooting in Rajasthan by a
regional political group.
To a question if the director planned to bring any changes in
the script of the film after the protest, Shahid said, "All I want
the film should get completed and people should want it and decide
on what the film is. I will be resuming for shooting soon."
Shahid was present at the launch of the premium innerwear brand
Eazy by Sirtext as a brand ambassador. With inputs from IANS.
