The much awaited trailer of Padmavati is here and we can’t stop drooling over it. The three minutes long trailer gives you goose bumps with every frame and is nothing short of the mastery and genius of the ace director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Brimming with magnificence, it takes us to the exuberant and majestic land of Chittorgarh giving tip-of-the-iceberg feeling. The trailer has already crossed 14 million views on Youtube.
Padmavati is the story of Mallika-e-Chittor, Rani Padmini (played by Deepika Padukone) and Raja Ratan Singh (played by Shahid Kapoor), the king of Chittor and is based on the 14th century siege of the Chittor Fort by Alauddin Khilji (played by Ranveer Singh), who was obsessed with the charm and beauty of the fearless queen. Khilji led the invasion with the desire to capture Padmini who later committed Jauhar to protect her honor.
An interesting fact is that back in 1303, Alauddin Khijli and Raja Ratan Singh had a face off for the first time ever. This is also the reason why the trailer of the movie was released at 13:03.
The jaw dropping looks of Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have received rave reviews. Deepika Padukone looks mesmerizing as Queen Padmavati. Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh looks menacing. In the epic trailer fueled with opulence and majesty, what captured everyone’s eye is the extremely talented Ranveer Singh who stands out. Getting into the shoes of the brutal emperor, Singh proves his mettle as a versatile actor yet another time.
Padmavati promises some spectacular performances and is said to be the biggest movie of 2017. The magnum opus is Bhansali’s third collaboration with rumored love birds Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone after Bajirao Mastani. This is Shahid Kapoor’s maiden project with the director.
Padmavati, produced by Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is scheduled for December 1 release.
