New Delhi : Finally, actor Ranveer Singh's much-awaited look for his forthcoming film Padmavati is out. The 32-year-old actor, who plays ruler Alauddin Khilji in the period drama, looks fierce in both the posters. Kohl eyes, long hair and a scar make his look deadly. "SULTAN ALAUDDIN KHILJI #Khilji," Ranveer wrote while sharing the posters on social media. His look was revealed just a few hours ago and soon, it became the top trends on the Internet. "A transformation of an all-rounder actor. Versatile and all-time entertainer. Can't wait for this movie," "Khattarrnaaakk" are some of the comments on Ranveer's Padmavati look. Alauddin Khilji was the most powerful ruler of the Khalji dynasty.
Padmavati, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, also stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. Deepika and Shahid's looks have been revealed earlier. Deepika plays Rani Padmini of Chittor while Shahid features as her husband Ratan Singh.
Soon after Deepika's look as Rani Padmini was released, a Rajput Karni Sena burnt posters of the film in Jaipur in protest. "While shooting in Jaipur, Mr Bhansali had promised to show the film to us and historians before releasing it. But since then no one has contacted us, nor has the film been shown to us," Karni Sena president told news agency IANS.
Padmavati is Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's third collaboration with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He has previously directed the actors in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and Bajirao Mastani (2015). It is Shahid's first film with Mr Bhansali as well as Ranveer and Deepika.
Padmavati releases on December 1.
