“I think you guys are being very kind because in the trailer my character is underplayed. You will discover him only on the big screen. Wait for the film,” he said.

“I don’t know. Those are not my choices. Those are the choices of the filmmaker. I have just given 200 percent to the film.”

In a question, whether it was a deliberate trick to underplay his role, the actor humbly replied that it is the choice of the filmmakers of what and how to show.

“I don’t know. Those are not my choices. Those are the choices of the filmmaker. I have just given 200 percent to the film.”

On the other hand, he did express his gratitude for being selected to play the role of historical figure Maha Rawal Ratan Singh.

“It has been a journey of the year. It’s a film, which everybody has worked really hard on. It is a privilege to be a Rajput king. I feel very proud as an Indian to play a king from a dynasty, which is known to be brave, fearless and respectful towards women. It’s (Padmavati) a legendary tale about the amazing people that existed at the time and I am privileged to have played Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. It’s difficult to say. I want people to see the film. I know the trailer’s out. The looks are out and everyone is talking about it but you have to see the film to understand what it is about and to truly experience it.”

However, Kapoor refrained from answering questions regarding the publicity and promotion of the movie. He said, he is clueless about the promotions of the movie.
