We all are excitedly waiting for the release of Padmavati’s trailer, which is scheduled to come at 13:03 today. However, we are intrigued by the unusual way the makers have chosen to promote their film so far. From releasing the first look of actors Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, during the wee hours to now deciding to launch the first look of the film during an odd timing of 13:03, Padmavati is surely keeping us on our toes and we are brimming with loads of curiosity. But there is a reason to why the trailer is being launched digitally at 13:03 hour.

Apparently, back in 1303, Alaudin Khijli (character of Ranveer Singh) and Raja Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) had a face off for the first time ever. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted, “. @deepikapadukone , @shahidkapoor and @RanveerOfficial ‘s #PadmavatiTrailer releases @ 13:03 bcos it was in 1303 AD King & Khilji faced off.”

In fact, even Wikipedia reads, “In 1303, Alauddin Khalji, the Turkic ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, laid siege to the Chittor Fort in Rajputana. According to Padmavat, Khalji led the invasion motivated by his desire to capture Rani Padmini. (as mentioned in Padmavat,an epic poem written in 1540 CE.)”

Well, if this the reason then we are sure that this film is something to surely watch out for. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati is scheduled for December 1 release.
