If you have gone gaga over Deepika’s look, its time to praise Shahid

If you have gone gaga over Deepika’s look for the magnanimous film Padmavati, its time to praise Shahid Kapoor whose look has been revealed today.

After creating a big wave by unveiling the first look of Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, the makers of Padmavati have now shared the much-anticipated look of actor Shahid Kapoor.

Shahid Kapoor has portrayed the character of King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in the period drama – looks both royal and intense in the new posters that unveiled on Monday.

The makers took to Twitter to share Shahid’s first look. The tweet on the film’s official Twitter handle read.

“look in Sanjay Leela Bhanasali’s ‘Padmavati’ is out and the 36-year-old Bollywood actor is killing us with his fierce and royal look. Shahid will play King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in the much-awaited period drama.”.

Talking about his look in ‘Padmavati’, Shahid Kapoor shared to Indian Express, “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 intense poster makes it evident that Shahid wears a thick beard, a long red ‘tika’ and completes the royal look by accessorizing it with men’s earrings. But what really grabs the attention is the scar which goes on to explain his heroic leadership.

Since last Friday,Deepika Padukone’s look for Rani Padmavati  remained as talk of the town and now its turn for Shahid Kapoor the  Maharawal Ratan Singh.


Shahid Kapoor is seen dressed in Rajashtani finery and his looks like a sight to behold.

In fact, in an interview with News18, the designers also shed light on all that went into the process of designing. “During the initial stages of the project, Mr. Bhansali and his team took us through the script in order to understand the flow of the narrative and nuances of each character as the garments have to reflect the same.”

If we consider the buzz that  the makers have been creating about the film, actor Ranveer’s look – for which he has shaved off his beard to shoot younger version of Alauddin Khilji – might also be revealed soon.

“Now slowly material will start to come. Deepika’s look has been launched then Shahid’s and my look will also be out and after that trailer of the film will get release,” Ranveer said in one of his recent interviews.

In Padmavati, Deepika is playing Rani Padmini aka Padmavati of Chittore, alongside Ranveer Singh’s Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor’s Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. The film is also produced by Bhansali Pictures and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

It is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
