Padmavati makes fastest views ever for a Hindi trailer

The film has Deepika playing the titular role of Rani Padmavati, Shahid will be seen as Maha Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer is playing the main antagonist Allaudin Khilji. The film will be Bhansali's third project with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone after "Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela" (2013) and "Bajirao Mastani" (2015).

Humbled by the response, Ranveer penned down an emotional letter and thanked all his fans. "It's very rare...and very, very humbling". While she did not say a single word in the trailer her eyes did the talking Deepika Padukone ended the trailer with a very powerful dialogue which establishes not only her character but also marks the foundation of the film. "I am a very competitive person but I feel that we're in a space where we can actually be inspired by each other's work", according to Indian media. This is my tenth year. Deepika's ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor also had a jaw-dropping moment when he saw her first look.

I am still shooting the movie (just the last few days left now) so unfortunately, I'm not able to reply to each one of you kind folks individually like I usually do.

"When I see the looks of Deepika, Shahid and Ranveer from Padmavati, I'm dying to watch the film". Coming to the reel thing, nearly every celebrity in Bollywood went showering praises on Ranveer Singh's screen presence, many outpoured their love and affection on Deepika too. The film is set to hit theatres on December 1.

Padmavati will bring to screen one of the most treasured Rajasthani folklore.

Ranveer Singh new avatar on the magazine is an extension of his brutal and ruthless avatar from his upcoming epic historic drama Padmavati, where the versatile actor will be seen in the role of Alauddin Khilji.

Padmavati is director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's retelling of the legend of Rani Padmini, queen of Chittor, and how she committed jauhar to escape the invading Khilji.
