One of the most powerful first looks, hit our social media feeds this morning. We got a glimpse of Shahid Kapoor, who plays Maharawal Ratan Singh, in Padmavati, and his character looks amazing to say the least!
Shahid Kapoor plays Deepika’s on-screen husband and the King of Chittor, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus m which also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. Here are some images!
The actor flaunts a bearded look in the poster, adorned with jewellery, making him look royal, yet powerful. Speaking about his look, Shahid revealed to Hindustan Times, “When you are playing a king, you need to have a certain personality. At that time, the people used to not be very skinny and lean, so you need to have a manly personality. Basically for that, and to carry those outfits also, Sanjay sir (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) wanted me to be a little muscular and a little full. But I will be gaining weight in terms of muscle and not in terms of fat. This is because I am playing the character of a warrior. The Rajput kings had very strong personalities.”
Recently, even Deepika Padukone’s look was released, where she looked every bit a glorious queen.
The film is slated to release on 1st December (2017), and we can’t wait!
