‘Padmavati’ is an Indian epic period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The movie features Deepika Padukone in the title role as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji, with Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh in supporting roles.
The trailer showcases the chemistry between Shahid and Deepika’s chemistry beautifully in the initial scenes where Rani Padmavati is stitching Maharawal Ratan Singh’s pagdi.
Based on the epic poem Padmavat (1540) by Malik Muhammad Jayasi, the film narrates the story of Padmavati, a legendary Rajput queen.
This will be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s third collaboration with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone after ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ (2013) and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015).
Initially scheduled for 1 December 2017, the film’s release has been delayed indefinitely because of numerous controversies.
