Bollywood's most witty actor, Ranveer Singh is equally efficient when it comes to his movies. The actor is known for his utmost dedication and contribution to his films without any restraints. Though this time, his enthusiasm to get into the skin of his film's character has landed him in trouble.

Ranveer who will be seen playing the role of historic ruler, Alauddin Khilji in his upcoming period drama, 'Padmavati' is apparently facing issues in getting rid of his character. As per a reliable source, the actor is planning to seek help from a psychiatrist to overcome the influence of his role.

The unconventional actor reportedly locked himself in an apartment for days while preparing for the character. It took a lot of hard work and devotion on Ranveer's part for portraying this antagonist on screen with perfection.

Shooting as Khilji for a year has indeed taken a toll on his behaviour. Now that the film is almost on the verge of completion and the filmmakers are planning to head-start with the promotional activities, Ranveer's weird behaviour has got them worried.

Many of his friends have suggested him to seek professional help and the actor is more than willing to take up the advice to get his lively old self back.

A source confirmed, "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."

He added, "It affected his reactions and behaviour towards people. Which is why his friends advised him to get help in emerging beyond Khilji. He is going to a psychiatrist to get rid of the Khilji influences."

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' also stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles. The film is slated to hit the theatres on December 1.
