The first posters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Padmavati have left the fans in awe of Deepika Padukone.
In both the posters, a contemplative Deepika Padukone clad in traditional Rajasthani attire and weighed down in jewellery as Padmini, the fictitious queen of Chittor.
However, a standout feature of the posters is the unibrow Deepika seems to be sporting.
The movie which was supposed to be released on November 17 also got a new release date, December 1. The movie was delayed after its shooting in Jaipur was disrupted.
Padmavati will bring to screen one of the most treasured Rajasthani folklore. The story pivots around Delhi ruler, Alauddin Khilji, and his siege of Chittor which a sixteenth-century poem Padmavat attribute to his obsession with Padmini.
Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Queen Padmini’s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of an antagonist, Alauddin Khijli.
This is Deepika and Ranvir’s third movie with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
Many popular faces from the fraternity shared their excitement regarding the new posters.
