After Goliyan ki Rasleela – Ramleela and Bajirao mastani, the maestro has returned to give Indian audience another block buster. The versatile director is known for his perfect casting, luxurious setting, marvellous music, dramatic dialogues and beautiful costumes. His movies are visual master pieces. After much controversies and drama, the movie is all set to release on 1st December 2017.
Based on a real-life story
Yes, the movie is said to be based on the life of the enchanting and charming queen of Chhitorgarh, Rani Padmini or Padmavati. It is said that the queen, who was a princess of Singhal, was exceptionally alluring. The king of Chittor, Raja Ratan Sen married her after hearing all those praising. However, the Sultan of Delhi, Alaudin Khiliji also heard about het and attacked Chittor to abduct her. It will be really interesting to watch the historical legend.
Star casts of the movie
Initially there were some reports saying Aiswariya Rai and Salman Khan would play the lead roles. There were also rumours that Priyanka Chopra would play a cameo. But all these rumours were denied by the respective actors. However, the enchantress Deepika Padukon will be playing the lead role of Rani Padmavati. Dashing Shahid Kapoor will be playing the role of Raja Rawal Ratan singh, the husband of Rani Padmavati. The heartthrob of the nation, Ranveer Singh will be playing an anti-hero, role of Allaudin Khiliji. Apart from that Sanjay Dutt is also in the movie. Aditi Rao Hydari will be playing the role of Kamala Devi, wife of Allaudin Khiliji. Jim Sarabh will be seen playing the role of malik Naib Kafur. Among other stars Sonu Sood and Danny Denzongpa will be seen playing crucial roles.
The plot of the movie seems to be a little bit different from the original legend. Rani Padmavati will be seen as the queen of Mewar. The movie will be loosely based on the epic poem, Padmavat, composed by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
The movie has been facing series of dispute since announcement happened. The members of a local political party of Rajasthan alleged Vansali of showing some inappropriate scenes in the movie. The first look of the movie was released on 21st September, which up-raised more arguments. In this first look, Deepika Padukon is being seen with uni-brow. No doubt she is looking stunning (after all my favorite actress). But some people have criticised saying she is looking horrible instead of beautiful. Another thing which may upraise more controversy is the role of Ranveer Singh. He will be seen playing the role of a bisexual. Apart from Deepika Padukon, he will be seen romancing Jim Sarabh, who is playing the role of Naib Kafur. Perhaps it will be the first Indian cinema portraying the bisexual concept on screen.
Music is another remarkable portion in Vanshali’s movies. Shreya Ghosal has sung five songs in this movie. There is also a groomer dance performance in this movie done by Deepika Padukon.
