‘Padmavati’: Shahid Kapoor looks regal as Maharawal Ratan Singh


After unveiling the royal look of Deepika Padukone in 'Padmavati', the first look of Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh was unveiled and it looks quite impressive. Shahid Kapoor nailed as the Rajput prince.

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, "??????? ??? ????. ????, ???????? ?? ?????? ?? ??????. #Padmavati #MaharawalRatanSingh @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial."

Talking about his look in an earlier interview, 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."

The magnum opus directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali features Deepika Padukone in the role of ‘Rani Padmavati’ and her rumoured beau Ranveer Singh essays the role of Alauddin Khilji. The film is slated to hit the theaters on December 1.
