There are certain movies which gain attention after their release, while there are some that enjoy an unparalleled attention even during the nascent stages of its making, thanks to the innumerable controversies attached to it. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming project ‘Padmavati’ fall in the latter category, after we saw the film’s sets being vandalized and posters and banners being burnt in retaliation against the movie. However, all these controversies couldn’t deter Bhansali from moving ahead with his magnum-opus period drama and despite several delays and protests, we finally got to see the first look of goddess queen Rani Padmini.

While we were still dumbfounded over Deepika’s regal look and the beauty she is, Bhansali dropped another bomb on us, which will take really long to recuperate from. Hold your breath guys, as Maharawal Ratan Singh aka Shahid Kapoor’s look from the movie is here. Yes, the first look was released today and the ‘Udta Punjab’ actor is looking every bit fierce and dangerously handsome as the King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband.

With a heavy beard, bloodstained torn clothes and the scar on face from a battle, Shahid is raising the hotness bar with this fierce aura. In another tweet, Shahid Kapoor wrote “Maharawal Ratan Singh, saahas, saamarthya aur sammaan ka prateek.” In fact, talking about his look Shahid reportedly said, “When you are playing a King, you need to have a certain personality. At that time, the people used to not be very skinny and lean, so you need to have a manly personality. Basically for that, and to carry those outfits also, Sanjay sir wants me to be a little muscular and a little full. But I will be gaining weight in terms of muscle and not in terms of fat. This is because I am playing the character of a warrior. The Rajput kings had very strong personalities.” Well, now that the look is out, we don’t think there could have been a better choice than Shahid.

‘Padmavati’ is slated to release on December 1 and now that we have seen the first look of Deepika and Shahid, we can’t wait to see Alauddin Khilji aka Ranveer Singh’s look. This movie is said to be the first collaboration between Shahid Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, as Deepika and Ranveer have already worked with him in ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
