As ‘Padmavat’ clocks six years of release, we can’t help but shed light on how Ranveer Singh’s portrayal of Khilji was one of the best performances ever that still continues to live in the hearts of millions! What added a unique touch to this character is how he effortlessly pulled off the ‘Binte Dil’ song with no rehearsal. 

In an earlier interview, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali opened up on how Ranveer improvised the steps spontaneously, without any previous rehearsal. With 'Binte Dil,' Ranveer not only showcased his acting finesse but also revealed his spontaneous choreographic brilliance! 

He quoted, "I was shooting this bathtub song in Padmavat; Binte Dil with Jim Sarbh and Ranveer in the bathtub. And I didn’t know what to do. I went over there, and I said Jim Morrison and Zeenat Aman - mix the two. He said give me one hour. I need to first debrief and understand & then understand what the hell you are talking about. And then he came, and I said, “I don’t want to see rehearsal; we’ll go for the take straight away.” He didn’t know what hit him. And when he performed, I was so moved by what he did because that is how an actor is improvising. I’m improvising. We had no brief. We didn’t know what to do. And it’s constantly discovering the moment on the set."

In a remarkable feat, as mentioned, there were no rehearsals. The dance evolved organically as the cameras rolled, capturing the essence of his creativity in every unscripted move, which just goes on to prove that he's one of the best actors from this generation.
