The two already went under strenuous routine to get into the correct physique. Ranveer in fact locked himself up for 21 days to marinate into the character. That's some dedication! And the entire team went the distance to get every single moment on the screen right and authentic. Check out the picture of Ranveer's transformation here:

Coming to Shahid, in a recent interview the actor spoke about playing Maharwal Ratan Singh, "It was one of the biggest risks of my career. To take up a role where for one and a half year nobody knew what it is and for whatever reason, it was kept like that. So many people told me ki ‘Yaar tu ye picture kyu kar raha hai?’" We're glad Shahid took the risk because have you seen the film?! See Shahid's transformation pics below:
