After Deepika Padukone‘s first look in Padmavati, we were intrigued to see Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh. This is the first time Sasha is working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and the film has not one, but three superstars. Movie buffs better watch out for this one!
Shahid’s mom Neelima Azim too, was mighty impressed with his look and get up in the poster. She told Pinkvilla:
As a mother and as an artiste my reactions are two entirely different things. As a mother I am terribly awed, overwhelmed and very happy with his look as its spectacular. As an actress I am very impressed as there’s a lot of hard work that has gone into it. I am a huge fan of Mr Bhansali’s films and have watched them all. I think he’s a great maestro, he’s a master of his art and his films are always extremely artistically portrayed. I think he is the only filmmaker that can mount a film as grandly as he does, whether historical or love stories like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Khamoshi or triangles. He’s a great filmmaker who is upping his game in every film. The last film he did Bajirao Mastani was absolutely brilliant and fascinating and now he’s coming up with something more powerful in Padmavati.
Can’t wait for Padmavati to hit the screens!
