While the release of the movie was far from being a smooth sail, post-release days don’t seem to be that great either, given the fresh controversies brewing each day. Recently, actress Swara Bhaskar also wrote an open letter to Bhansali, pointing out the depiction of ‘Jauhar’ in the movie; which got certain mixed reactions from the fraternity as well as the cast of the movie. Overall too, the fans and critics seem to be divided in their opinion about the movie.

However, despite the endless controversies that Bhansali and his ‘Padmaavat’ find themselves in, one can’t take away from the fact that this movie was indeed a visual treat and a spectacular account of courage, bravery, and valor of the Rajput community. Bhansali’s movies majorly focus on grandeur, opulent sets and rich detailing and this movie too shone brightly in its full beauty. 

And in the 2 hours 40 minutes, if you couldn’t figure out the time, effort and hard work that the entire cast and crew invested in the film, then you HAVE to check these pictures out. ‘Padmaavat’s’ production designer recently shared a series of images from the film sets. Reportedly, the sets were designed and created by Amit Ray and Subrata Chakraborty. 

From designing royal palaces to the makeshift tents used for war scenes, these pictures speak volumes about Bhansali’s extraordinary vision. 

While, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor brilliantly portrayed Goddess queen Padmavati and Maharawal Ratan Singh; it was Ranveer Singh who took home the cake with his portrayal of mad king Alauddin Khilji. And this picture is proof of the amount of hard work that has gone into the making of Ratan Singh and Khilji.
