If you thought Ranveer Singh could only pull off good-boy image on the big screen, you need to look at his menacing act in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film Padmavati. The 32-year-old actor, who made women go weak in the knees with his roles in Bhansali’s Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani, is set to surprise you with Padmavati.
It is no secret that Singh will essay the role of Alauddin Khilji in the period drama. And after the first look of Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor from the film came out, Bollywood fans were eagerly awaiting Singh’s look, and going by the new posters, Bhansali has definitely not disappointed movie buffs.
Ranveer took to Twitter to give his fans a glimpse of his character in the film.
Kohl eyes, long tresses and a scar under his eyes, Khilji looks everything dangerous.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama is based on the ruthless invader Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, and his attempt to capture the beautiful Rani Padmini of Chittor for himself.
The film was in rough waters recently. Earlier this year, the sets of the film were vandalised in Jaipur and the filmmaker was assaulted for allegedly distorting history. Now, the outfit behind the attack, the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, has burnt posters of Padmavati and is threatening to not allow the release of the film.
The film is slated to release on December 1.
