After several controversies around Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest project Padmavati, there’s finally a good news for all movie lovers.
The movie’s filming will begin shortly and is all set for a 2017 release. Here’s everything you wanted to know about the movie.
The movie is based on the life of Maharani Padmavati, the queen of Chittor. Padmavati showcases the relationship of the queen with her husband King Ratansen and Sultan Alauddin Khilji’s obsession with her.
It is believed that Padmavati sacrificed her life for the self-esteem of Chittorgarh. Along with 1,600 other queens, she died of a Jauhar (a custom of self-immolation of queens and female royals of Rajput kingdoms) when Alauddin Khilji had attacked Chittorgarh.
After the success of the historical drama Bajirao Mastani, actor Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have been roped in for Padmavati. Deepika portrays the role of Maharani Padmavati and Ranveer plays the character of Alauddin Khilji. Actor Shahid Kapoor will be essaying the role of Maharaja Ratansen, Padmavati’s husband.
Fans posted the latest looks of Ranveer on social networking websites and the same have been anticipated as his character look for the movie. The actor sports heavily kohled eyes and bearded look in these pictures.
Shahid Kapoor too, has been sporting a handlebar mustache and was even spotted outside the Bhansali office.
