When you combine some of the best actors of the millennial generation like Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor with ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, hearts start racing because one doesn’t expect anything less than a miracle.The amount of buzz that ‘Padmavati’ has created months before its release and for that matter, months before even its trailer was released, is not something that happens with every Bollywood film. Controversies and stunning posters showcasing the looks of the characters acted as the cherry on top of the cake.

You must be wondering why 1:03 p.m. to be exact.
The significance of the time of the release of the trailer is believed to be the first fight between Maharawal Ratan Singh and Sultan Alauddin Khilji. The battle was fought in 1303 AD for the very first time. Deepika Padukone is seen playing the role of Rani Padmini of Chittor, while Shahid Kapoor features in the role of her husband Rawal Ratan Singh. And Ranveer Singh is playing the role of the menacing Alauddin Khilji. The expectations were riding really high and without a doubt, they were exceeded. The trailer which unexpectedly focuses a little more on Shahid and Ranveer’s characters is breathtaking, to say the least.
Stunning and picturesque sets, subtle yet noteworthy chemistry between Deepika and Shahid and Ranveer’s intense and dark AF character along with the excellent cinematography- our hearts definitely skipped a beat. Have a look for yourself:
Deepika is her regal self, Shahid surely justifies the look of the royal ‘Rajput’, but it is the narcissism of Ranveer as the ravenous Khilji that takes the cake. The film is all set to hit the silver screen on December 1, 2017 and the fans and movie buffs can’t wait to watch this epic film.
