Critics and fans were bowled over by Ranveer Singh’s integrity as Aluaddin Khilji. Many claim the film should have been titled ‘Khilji’ instead of ‘Padmavaat’ as Ranveer pulled all the right chords to create a menacing, uncompassionate, selfish and jilted lover.

He won hearts with his performance as well as honest interviews, were he claimed how lonely and disconnected he felt from family and friends, and how often he ranted to his mother about the complexity and challenges that came with being ‘Khilji’.
It was only natural for him to hike his fee, considering how well Padmaavat’s reception has been, garnering over 200 Crores worldwide. But what’s interesting is that Ranveer Singh’s pay hike will now align with sweetheart Deepika Padukone, standing at a whopping INR 13 Crores.
A source reveals:
Ranveer Singh has his calendar full with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy as a street rapper, Rohit Shetty’s entertainer Simnba and Kapil Dev’s biopic ’83, highlighting his World Cup win. Ranveer’s career graph is indeed on an upward trend.
