The makers of Bollywood period-drama film Padmavati unveiled the first look in which actress Deepika Padukone looked every inch a reigning empress.
The first poster of the film shows Padukone in a red lehnga and choli by designer duo Rimple and Harpreet, paired with elaborate Rajasthani jewellery by Tanishq. Some 200 craftsmen worked for 600 days to create some of the jewellery that will be showcased in the movie. Each piece of jewellery in the movie plays a significant role, said a statement.
The poster shows a group of women in veils standing behind Padukone, who can be seen standing with folded hands. The actress plays Rani Padmavati of Chittore in the film.
A second poster shows the actress, who is sporting a unibrow for the first time, standing inside what seems like a temple.
Padmavati – directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali (known for grand period dramas), is the story of Chittor’s Rani Padmini, who performed juahar with several Rajput women after Alaudin Khilji invaded the fort of Chittor. Ranveer Singh plays the role of Alaudin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor plays Deepika’s onscreen husband Ratan Singh in the film.
The movie is slated for release in December 2017.
