Well, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has definitely been successful in creating an unmatched buzz for his period drama.
The trailer was released on Monday (October 9) at 13:03 pm in sync with the timeline of the film, which is set in the year 1303. As much as Padmavati is the story of Rajputs defending their honour from a ruthless ruler, it is also a tale of love. Rano Padmini or Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) will play Shahid's Wife in the movie and has a major role and Deepika looking outstandingly handsome as usual.
The role of the king, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, is played by Shahid Kapoor. The looks of the cast members have piqued everyone's interest from the average movie buff to Ranbir Kapoor to Karan Johar. Choosing honour over a life in Delhi, Padmini and the other women of Chittor killed themselves by leaping into a fire - a practice called Jauhar.
With the highly-anticipated trailer for Padmavati out, we can't help but fall in love with it. And just like all Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie, the music and the way it has been composed to suit to every character in the film, will definitely take your breath away.
Padmavati also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh.
Jointly produced by Bhansali Productions and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Padmavati is based on the legendary queen from the epic "Padmavat" written by Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540 CE. The movie will release on December 1, and the trailer has already made us irresistible to wait.
