In the poster, Shahid Kapoor is in a blood-stained attire against the backdrop of a battlefield. The actor is wearing a tensed look and also has visible scars from the battle. In another poster Shahid Kapoor is sporting a sword which gives a signal that the flick is filled with action sequences.
Talking about his look in ‘Padmavati’, Shahid Kapoor had said, “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 wants 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.
Alongside the aforementioned actors, Ranveer Singh will also star in ‘Padmavati’. Ranveer role-plays Alauddin Khilji, a ruthless invader who attempts to capture the Queen of Chittor.
Padmavati will hit the silver screens on 1st December.
