The film which stars Deepika Padukone essaying the titular role of Rani Padmavati aka Padmini is making the audience go gaga over the trailer so much that in not even 24 hours of the trailer release, it has managed to garner more than 10 million views. Apart from Deepika Padukone’s valour and beauty, Shahid Kapoor who essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh who plays Alauddin Khilji have also grabbed a lot of eyeballs.

Many of us may have seen the trailer on repeat mode but we are sure that you might have missed these minute details which will enhance your experience the next time you watch it. Check it out.

1. Padmavati’s welcome to the fort of Chittor
The opening sequence of the trailer showcases the grand entry of Rani Padmini in the Chittor fort. This scene will feature in the film after Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) marries Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) and gets her to Chittor now known as Chittorgarh.

2. Alauddin’s meeting with Padmavati
We all know by now that Alauddin Khilji never met Rani Padmavati and he just saw her reflection in the mirror. As per history, this scene looks like Ranveer Singh is on his way to meet the Queen of Mewar. The lotus in his hand is just an apt use of symbolism. The same scene also features our very own Jim Sarbh. The guy throwing the petals, yes he is Jim!

3. Letter of capture
As per history Alauddin Khilji takes Maharawal Ratan Singh as his capture and sends a letter to Padmavati informing her about the same. Looking at this scene in the trailer we can be assured that Rani Padmini wasn’t quite happy with the news.

4. How Padmavati’s beauty reached Alauddin
As per history, Maharawal Ratan Singh’s court had a subject Raghav Chetan who was abolished from Singh’s courtroom after he was caught performing an illegal sorcery. Feeling insulted, Raghav landed in Alauddin’s courtroom and spoke to him highly about Padmavati’s beauty. Looks very much like this scene.

5. When Maharawal Ratan Singh meets Alauddin Khilji
Just before taking Maharawal Ratan Singh as captive Alauddin Khilji meets him and Sanjay Leela Bhansali included a glimpse of this scene in the trailer.

Now that you know these 5 things we are sure you’ll love watching the trailer again.
