ranveer singh, padmavati Ranveer Singh has wrapped up the shoot for Padmavati.

The most anticipated film of the year, Padmavati, is all set to release on December 1. Ranveer Singh, who plays Alauddin Khilji in the grand epic, has wrapped up his portion for the saga and he shared this with his fans on Twitter. Ranveer tweeted, “And it’s a wrap! Goodbye Alauddin. 1 year and a few weeks later, I bid thee farewell. May your restless soul find its peace… #Khilji”

Along with Ranveer Singh, the film also stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic saga, Padmavati, has been embroiled in controversies with Rajput Karni Sena objecting to the film’s release. The group does not want facts to be misrepresented in the film and thus, caused various disruptions while the film was being shot in Rajasthan. Rajput Karni Sena has now demanded that Sanjay Leela Bhansali should show the movie to people of their organisation so they can check if the film is tampering with historical facts.

The trailer of Padmavati presented Ranveer’s menacing Khilji in all its glory and it would be safe to assume that his performance is going be applauded by the audience. This would be Ranveer’s third collaboration with Bhansali. The duo first worked in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and then worked together in Bajirao Mastani (2015). Padmavati’s trailer was also launched in 3-D recently.

Ranveer Singh was last seen in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre (2016). He has spent more than a year on Bhansali’s Khilji and we can expect this performance of the actor to completely blow away his audience.

    Is it news from great newspaper of Late Goenka Sir? Khiljee killed thousands of Buddhist monks and destroyed thousands of temples. Why to glorify a bad and the worst historysheeter?

            What is the point in distorting the history and presenting it as happened events to stir the people's sentiments? Or is it a ploy of unpaid publicity?

              What is the motive behind presenting distorted history as historical events and stirring the sentiments of a section of people? Because Hindus are comparatively tolerant, they can be taken for granted and played on Their emotions? Or is it a ploy to get unpaid publicity?

              Bollywood is a business and just like any other business, its job is to make money. Don't go to movies if you can't separate life and entertainment. The movie is not even out and you are giving your opinion like a fact. Where is your shame when you spread hate and destroy the country? Such a joke

                So, according to you anything can be shown in a movie because it is just a movie. As someone said, can bollywood dare to show paigamber. Can they show burning of the national flag and will it still be considered just a business? Can they show a child rape and you will still go watch it?

                  Khilji was not a 'mogul', as a matter of fact he fought against moguls. btw the movie is based on a poem written long after khiliji and in no way represents true accounts of history, as Rita Whittaker rightly suggested, just enjoy the show and don't dig too deep in to the obsolete accounts of history, besides every one has their own stock of heroes and villains so there's no use having an internet sword fight.

                  I suggest bansali to make one more magnum opus on the life of prophet mohemed and take ranveer in lead role of movie as pagamber. We already had Arun govil as ram in Ramayan epic. But world yet not seen picturisation on prophet. And we really want to see your art and dare. Best of luck bansali g.
