Padmavati trailer: An epic you really don’t want to miss!

With the highly-anticipated trailer for Padmavati out, we can’t help but fall in love with it. With Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh, and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, the trailer screams grandeur.

Taking us on an encapsulating journey of the barren but colourful lands of Rajasthan, the story introduces us to Padmini and Ratan Singh’s budding love story with the evil Alauddin Khilji in the milieu. While Deepika and Shahid share an extremely strong chemistry on-screen in the trailer, Ranveer takes the cake with his almost Khal Drogo inspired Alauddin Khilji.

Shot with the signature Sanjay Leela Bhansali style of storytelling, the film oozes history and intricacy. With so much attention to detail, the film is a testament to all that the filmmaker stands for. If nothing else, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the grand scenes in the trailer, where we find everything from the lecherous looks of Ranveer to the royal ensembles of Deepika and Shahid.

With Padmavati a story about passion, love and warfare, one can’t help but draw comparisons to Sanjay’s previous films like Ram Leela. However, like any film by the director, we’re sure this film will also have its own signature class.
