The Padmavati story is getting more and more interesting. The carefully timed release of Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor’s first looks in Padmavati created headlines. But trust Ranveer Singh to upstage both of them!
In a late night release of his first look, Ranveer released the poster in which he is seen as the menacing emperor. It’s a poster that sends chills down your spine with his long, unkempt hair and fierce look. It looks like, as one commentator on Twitter put it, Ranveer is determined to make Padmavati, Khilji’s story. The actor seems to have beefed up for the role and oozes menace from every angle. In the second picture, he is seen in all his royal glory, stern expression on his face and a glittering crown on his forehead.
But the poster release was not without drama. Ranveer had promised yesterday on Twitter that the first look would be released this morning. But somehow the poster got leaked online and made its way to entertainment websites. It resulted in several angry tweets, mostly by people from the film industry who was angry at the ‘piracy’.
As a result, Ranveer had to prepone the release and he posted it on his social media account rather late into the night.
Well, now all the principal characters’ looks have been released. Who are you most impressed by?
