Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has chosen the auspicious occasion of Navaratri to release the teaser of the magnum opus.

A close source of the film said, “Bhansali is very traditional and he wanted auspicious dates even for his teaser and trailer release. So, after Deepika’s look, in the coming two-three days, the official looks of Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh from the film will also be unveiled.” 

Commenting on the same,Bhansali said, "I'm happy to bring the story of 'Padmavati' to the screen. It was a fitting date for us to launch the first look of the film and celebrate this auspicious occasion."

A source said, "We did thorough research on Rani Padmini — from the kind of outfits she wore to her makeup. Women back then used natural ingredients to enhance their beauty. Bhansali was certain that he wanted to retain the authenticity. So, Deepika used very little makeup for her role. It would take her 30 minutes to get ready."

Despite being the queen of Mewar, Padmini's outfits have been influenced by Sinhalese style. "Since Padmini originally belonged to Sri Lanka, her outfits have a strong Sinhalese touch, although they are regal Rajputani attire."
