For all those
who were eagerly waiting to see Deepika Padukone all jewelled up as Rani
Padmani of Chittorgarh, the wait is over.
Here’s the first look of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati where Deepika is seen drenched in gold from head to toe. The most intriguing part of her look is the unibrow which Dippy is sporting for the first time in her career.
She pulls off the look extremely well. The fierce look in Deepika’s eyes and her expressions are quite impressive.
Ranveer and Deepika took to their social media accounts to release the poster.
With just the
first poster, one can understand that this is yet another magnum opus by
Bhansali. The look and feel of the poster is very rich.
The film has been in a lot of controversy since the time of its filming. The sets were attacked in Jaipur and Kolhapur by Karni Sena activists. Sanjay Leela Bhansali was physically manhandled. While his team tried to protect SLB, a blow landed straight on the cowering, unarmed, filmmaker. A lot of Bollywood celebs condemned the attack and the incidence became a major issue at that time. Celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar took to social media to express their anger. Bhansali had even issued an official statement condemning the attack and said it was uncalled for.
Padmavati, which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh as Rawal Ratan Singh and Alauddin Khilji respectively, is set to hit theatres on December 1, 2017.
