Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone shine in first trailer for 'Padmavati'

That might also be because Ranveer and Deepika and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are joining forces again. The makers of Padmavati, tapping into that, released the trailer of the film at 13.03 hours (1.03pm) today because of the same.

The trailer of the film, which was embroiled in a controversy after a Rajput faction accused the director of misrepresenting facts, carefully sticks to paying homage to Padmavati through its lyrics. Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, the film has generated a lot of buzz already and people can't wait for it to hit the screens. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the time was chosen specifically, as 1303 was the year in which Allauddin Khilji (played in the film by Singh), took over the Chittor Fort. Shahid Kapoor has been apt but it is Ranveer Singh who steals the show. Shahid Kapoor, as Rajput king Maharawal Ratan Singh, Padmavati's husband looks intense, fierce and ethereal.

Ranveer Singh is stepping into the shoes of Turkic emperor and plunderer Alauddin Khilji. Those who do not know, Johar recently said that he was jealous of Bhansali's ability to make visually bewitching cinema and that he was eagerly waiting to watch "Padmavati".

However, the movie "Padmavati" is based on the 14th century. Padmavati was the queen of Chittor and she is believed to have killed herself rather than letting Khilji capture her. The film also stars Jim Sarbh and Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles in important roles.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati's trailer is spellbinding with breathtaking visuals and spectacular sound design.

Padmavati is slated for a December 1 release and has seemingly infused enough intrigue and inquisitiveness in the minds of the audience to expect a good opening.
