Padmavati: Shahid Kapoor’s bloodied Maharawal Ratan Singh is perfect foil to Deepika’s queen BY SAEED NASIR

Shahid Kapoor’s first look from Padmavati is out and he performs a bloodied but unbent king. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

Shahid Kapoor’s Padmavati look is out and he is not a royal adorned by jewels but a king in the middle of a war.
Weekly after Deepika Padukone stunned one and all with her royal look from Padmavati, the creators of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film have released the first look of Shahid Kapoor. Shahid performs Deepika’s onscreen partner, MahaRawal Ratan Singh in Padmavati and the king of Chittor.

Shahid flaunts a intensely bearded look in the poster with jewellery adding to his royal and strong look. What one can’t miss is the visible battle scar and the appearance which says this king is amid a battle. He might look bloodied but he is obviously unbowed. Posting the posters, Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid published, “saahas, samarthya aur samman ka pratrek”.

Earlier, Shahid possessed revealed what travelled into making his personality of the ‘Maharawal’ possible, “If you are playing a king, you need to have a certain personality. At that time, the individuals used to not be very slim and lean, which means you have to have a manly personality. In essence for that, and also to carry those apparel also, Sanjay sir (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) required me to be a little muscular and just a little full. But I will be increasing weight in conditions of muscle rather than in terms of fat. It is because I am participating in the character of a warrior. The Rajput kings possessed very strong personalities.”

Last Monday, Deepika’s posters of Padmavati were released. She wore a red royal dress and heavy Rajasthani jewellery. It really is hard to miss Deepika’s unibrow, something that soon led to much Twitter conversation.


Deepika essays the titular role of Rani Padmavati while Shahid plays her spouse, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in the film. Ranveer takes on Alauddin Khilji in the ambitious period episode.

The applause for Padmavati and Shahid’s look began streaming in almost immediately. Alia Bhatt, Shahid’s Shaandaar co-star, was one of the primary to react.
The film is slated to hit theatres on Dec 1.
