While Om's show was a huge success on TV, Mukesh's character was well applauded yet the show went off air soon due to low TRPs.

Coming back to Padmavati, alongside Ranveer, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will also be seen playing the lead roles in the magnum opus historic drama. The film is all set to hit theatres on December 1.
