We can't stop obsessing over the trailer of the much-awaited Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmavati, which was released recently.
Ranveer Singh's portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in the magnum opus overshadowed Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the trailer and the epic movie soon became the talk of the town.
Bollywood celebrities expressed their support for the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie and its stars.
Humbled by the response, Ranveer penned down an emotional letter and thanked all his fans.
He wrote: "Thank you, from the bottom of my hear, to each and everyone of you who has been so generous in effusively showering love and appreciation for our trailer. To witness this avalanche of praise across the board is unprecendented and overwhelming. It's very rare... and very, very humbling."
Dear Zindagi actress Alia Bhatt also expressed her excitement regarding the movie. She said: "When I saw Deepika’s look in Padmavati I was jumping in my room because it looks so exciting. But initially, I wasn’t like that. 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.
On the other hand, Rockstar actor Ranbir Kapoor remarked, "You feel bad but you feel inspired as well. This is my tenth year. Probably earlier on I was more competitive and jealous but then you reach a point where it’s about your survival, your choices and how good you are. Now when I see Varun doing Judwaa I feel happy because so early he has learnt the art of pleasing the audience."
He added, "When I see the looks of Deepika, Shahid and Ranveer from Padmavati, I’m dying to watch the film."
The actor was quoted speaking at the Jio MAMI Film Festival.
Many other actors also praised the movie's first trailer on Twitter.
The movie which was supposed to be released on November 17 also got a new release date, December 1. The movie was delayed after its shooting in Jaipur was disrupted.
Padmavati will bring to screen one of the most treasured Rajasthani folklore. The story pivots around Delhi ruler, Alauddin Khilji, and his siege of Chittor which a sixteenth-century poem Padmavat attribute to his obsession with Padmini.
Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Queen Padmini’s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of an antagonist, Alauddin Khijli.
This is Deepika and Ranvir's third movie with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
