Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-awaited period drama Film Padmavati has got everyone aboard the promotion train. After arousing our curiosity with the first looks of Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, the Padmavati makers have finally released the official trailer, and it looks breathtaking.
Like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s previous movies, Padmavati is a visual delight. Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor personify royalty and Rajput pride. Deepika gives us goosebumps when she said, “Rajputi kangan mein utni hi taqat hai, jitni Rajputi talwar mein.”
But the show-stealer is Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, whose minacious eyes convince you that he is the face of barbarism.
The trailer hit the internet at 13:03, and if you were thinking about why such an oddly specific time has been chosen, the answer lies in history. It was in 1303 that Alauddin Khilji captured the Chittor fort. Padmavati revolves around the invader attacking Chittor because of his wish to capture the beautiful Rani Padmini for himself.
Padmavati ran into trouble with fringe groups after reports that there would be a romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji in the film. Earlier this year, the Karni Sena vandalized the sets of the film in Jaipur and assaulted Sanjay Leela Bhansali allegedly distorting history.

The Film is Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, Padmavati is going to release on 1st December 2017.
