The onset of Navratri was made extra special by the Padmavati team when they decided to drop a bomb on fans with Padmavati’s new poster. Yes, Deepika Padukone’s look is out from the film and she looks drop-dead gorgeous. Personifying royalty, Deepika is doing full justice to her character of Rani Padmavati of Chittod.
While Deepika has already essayed regal roles like this one in her previous period films, we are sure that this one is going to be even more special as she has stellar actors like Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor by her side. Decked with jewelry all over and donning authentic ethnic attire, Deepika is sporting an intense look. In fact, she looks lost in thought, even joining hands in one of them.

Sharing the poster on Twitter, Deepika said, “देवी स्थापना के शुभ अवसर पर मिलिए रानी पद्मावती से (On the auspicious day of Navratri, meet Rani Padmavati) #Padmavati @FilmPadmavati.” While Shahid wrote, “चित्तोड़ की महारानी, शौर्य और सौंदर्य का प्रतीक. रानीपद्मावती (The Queen of Chittod, the symbol of valor and beauty) #Padmavati @FilmPadmavati @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial” and Ranveer wrote, “मल्लिका-ए-चित्तोड़, पद्मावती #Padmavati @FilmPadmavati. (The Queen of Chittod)”
Yesterday the logo of the film was launched on Twitter. In fact, the announcement was quite regal in its own way. The makers wrote, “रानी पद्मावती पधार रही हैं… कल सूर्योदय के साथ.” (Rani Padmavati is arriving tomorrow with the sunrise.) And true to their word, the three actors shared the first look, a little before 7 am.

And now that we have witnessed the spellbinding look of Deepika as Rani Padmavati, we are even more impatient for Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor’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. On the otehr hand, Shahid Kapoor will be seen as Rawal Ratan Singh in this period drama. The film is slated to hit the theaters on December 1.
