A week after the release of Deepika Padukone’s Royal look as Rani Padmavati, we have been graced by the look of MahaRawal Ratan Singh, the king of Chittor, played by Shahid Kapoor.
Shahid flaunts a heavily bearded look in the poster with jewelry and kohl adding to his royal and intense look. What one can’t miss is the prominent battle scar and the look which says this king is in the midst of a battle. He may look bloodied but he is definitely unbowed. Sharing the posters, Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid wrote, “saahas, samarthya aur samman ka pratrek”.
Earlier, Shahid had revealed what went into making his character of the ‘Maharawal’ a reality, “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.”
Last Monday when Deepika revealed her look in the movie, her royal red dress was loved and her hard to miss unibrows were much of a topic of discussion over twitter!
Padmavati is jointly produced by Bhansali Productions and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. Deepika and Ranveer have earlier worked together with Bhansali in Bajirao Mastani (2015).
