And he is stunning in Padmavat, he is just amazing. Ranbir Kapoor, I saw him in Sanju. I saw a lot of his work, he was too good. I don’t know, off late I felt he was a little detracted, but in Sanju he was too good.”

With their great network, they are presenting our film very well. It is a wonderful thing. Because of them, people are getting to know about KGF. It is such a big production house.”
