Shahid Kapoor is a not a new name when we have the release date of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie Padmavati, within a month. This upcoming period drama has Deepika Padukone playing the titular role of Rani Padmini, while Ranveer Singh is playing the evil looking Emperor Alauddin Khilji and the chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor will be seen as Rajput king Rawal Ratan Singh. To be honest, Shahid is definitely rocking the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh as it’s for the first time that the actor is doing a period drama and he looks totally invested in the character. The looks are royal and valiant in the attire. If you think we are exaggerating, look at this new poster.
Also in the other news, the movie has already faced several protests in the past where shooting was stalled on several occasions after the sets were vandalised. Various regional groups and political organisations have issues with Bhansali twisting and presenting the role of Queen Padmini and demand a pre-release screening along with their members and historians. Well this is the price a good filmmaker pays to make one of the biggest Hindi films ever made. The Padmavati cast also includes Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh to make the show bigger and better. Hold your breath and watch out for the trailer as the movie releases on December 01 this year.
