Shahid Kapoor’s look in Sanjay Leela Bhanasali’s ‘Padmavati’ is out and the 36-year-old Bollywood actor is killing us with his fierce and royal look. Shahid will play King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in the much-awaited period drama.

The makers of ‘Padmavati’ took to Twitter on Monday morning to unveil Shahid’s look. A post on the film’s official Twitter handle read, “महारावल रतन सिंह. साहस, सामर्थ्य और सम्मान का प्रतीक. #Padmavati #MaharawalRatanSingh @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial.”

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.”

While Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Goliyon ki Rasleela, Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastaani, this is the first collaboration of Shahid Kapoor and Bhansali.

And now that we have witnessed the spellbinding looks of Deepika and Shahid, we are even more impatient for Ranveer Singh’s look in the film. While Deepika Padukone steps into the shoes of Rani Padmavati, her rumoured beau Ranveer Singh essays the role of Alauddin Khilji. The film is slated to hit the theaters on December 1.

      Brace yourself for Ranveer's first look now. Manly queen, more made-up villager like king and now hearing a bi ual villain. God save us from this costume drama with hollow pomp and non-authentic optics.

        Movie will be Good for Ranveer only. I don't thin shahid should have accepted a looser's role. Too bad for him and Deepika I can't stop laughing after all she isn't beautiful . She is ugly for classic roles.

          Thank God. He does not look good. In fact he is ugly looking. I hate Shahid. Good for nothing actor. Just keeping in limelight because of the good for nothing meera and daughter. He has more flops than films

            Obviously you don't have a sense of what is right and what is wrong! He is probably the best actor in Bollywood right now,beaides he doesn't even overreact like Ranveer Singh,neither he jumps around like him here and there. If the food for nothing bald Rajnikanth can become an actor and if his good for nothing son in law can become an actor ,then Shahid is obviously far far faar Better than them! Be it in looks,or dance or even body or even hair or even acting. Fan following is not the correct measure of someone's calibre,because fans can be stupid as well. If you don't know who is good nd who is bad,then do not expose yourself here,you don't even have the re tion to hate him!

              Hello it's my liking. I don't consider him as an actor. In fact I love Ranveer Singh. If you like him it's your right. I didn't interfere in that. According to me Shahid is a flop flop flop flop flop good for nothing actor

                Mediocre! Next we will see Maharaja taking his clothes off and showing his abs. This is considered doing a good job - kajal, makeup, hairstyle baady. Hoping to be spared from him dancing at least.

                  It is an SLB film! Everyone will show baaady (body). To with whoever they are playing onscreen. All for "cinematic moments".

                    Deepika looks manly because she doesn't deserve the role. Padmini was an extremely beautiful queen,deepika is overrated and nowhere near her in terms of beauty. She just sat in a white sareee thinkin that she was pretty in Bajirao too. Yami Gautam is far far prettier than her in every sense of the term. If given a chance,she cam act well. She should be padmini. I don't know why Deepika was chosen for the role. Shahid is the beat cast among all these 3.

                      Shahid is the weakest actor and wrong choice by SLB because Shahid is a panauti actor not even a star. Bloody fool shahid ne socha rangoon bada hit hoga aur ek magazine ko bola put him as a super star. Rangoon to ek din mein hi flop hogaya wo panauti Shahid ki karan. Abhi uska monkey bai debut kar raha hai. Aur ek panauti
