What has disturbed Deepika?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati is by far the most awaited film of the year. The movie is based on the tale of a long-forgotten story about Rani Padmini. It is believed that she performed jauhar (suicide) in 1303, the year Alauddin Khilji attacked Chittor. According to a report, Deepika had been working hard for the role and in the process became a little disturbed. A source quoted, "It is not easy to play a character who has to commit suicide, or jauhar, as it is called. And when one is working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he wants one to feel committed and feel the character all the time. Sanjay takes his time to shoot every sequence. The build up to the jauhar scene and the scene itself was rather elaborate. Deepika has already spoken about clinical depression earlier in her career. Hence, she does not want to do anything that will take her back to that space."

Meanwhile, there were also reports that Ranveer Singh had to visit a psychiatrist in order to go back to normal. A source revealed, "Ranveer has his friends and family worried. To become Khilji, he took the same route as he did to play Peshwa Bajirao. He locked himself up in his apartment, prepped and stayed in the headspace for weeks. Getting out of this dark, intimidating mindset wasn't easy for him. The film has also been shot for almost a year now, so sustaining the Khilji persona was very challenging. It affected his reactions and behaviour towards people."
