After Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh’s explosive looks from Padmavati, now Raza Murad’s first look as Jalaluddin Khilji is out.
The actor shared his first look on his Facebook account. Raza Murad described his character and revealed a bit about the screenplay of Padmavati as he wrote, “This is my look in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s ‘Padmavati‘. I am playing Jalaluddin Khilji who was the first ruler of Khilji dynasty in India. He ruled India (1290-1296) for six years and was killed by his paternal nephew and son in law, Alauddin Khilji, who took over the throne after killing his uncle and father in law. Ranveer Singh has played Allaudin Khilji. ‘Padmavati’ is obviously Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor is Rawal Ratan Singh, Ruler of Chittor, Deepika’s husband. The film would be released on 1st December, all over the world.”
However, the actor later deleted his post for reasons unknown.
Earlier, Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s poster had also created a stir and the film has been the talk of the town ever since for it’s raw and fierce looks.
Padmavati is based on lore that 14th century ruler Alauddin Khilji fell madly in love with Padmini, the queen of Chittor. Choosing honour over a life in Delhi, Padmini and the other women of Chittor killed themselves by leaping into a fire – a practice called jauhar.
While Deepika plays the titular role, Shahid will be seen as Rawal Ratan Singh. Padmavati, also starring Jim Sarbh and Aditi Rao Hydari, is slated for release on December 1.
