After Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor’s explosive looks as Rani Padmini and Maharawal Ratan Singh from ‘Padmavati’, now makers reveals the much awaited Ranveer Singh’s look as Alauddin Khilji in ‘Padmavati’ is revealed.
Looking pure royalty and fierce at the same time, Ranveer is giving us more reasons to be impatient for Padmavati’s release. His kohled eyes, the long tresses and the vicious look are all adding up to the rugged look of his character of Alauddin Khilji.
From his kohl-lined eyes to the unmanageable tresses as Khilji, everything shouts a spirit hard to control. The deadly scar below the right eye maybe the prize he carries from one of his numerous battles?
One of the pictures as Khilji show him in his bath, his tresses loose and his chest gloriously unwaxed. The blue-grey gaze is a little bit unsettling.
Unlike Deepika and Shahid whose characters got a long introduction o social media when their first looks were launched, Ranveer is simply described as ‘Sultan Alauddin Khilji’. While Deepika’s Padmavati was described as “goddess queen” among other things, Shahid’s Ratan Singh was described as “saahas, samarthya aur samman ke Pratik”.
Padmavati is based on lore that 14th century ruler Alauddin Khilji fell madly in love with Padmini, the queen of Chittor. Choosing honour over a life in Delhi, Padmini and the other women of Chittor killed themselves by leaping into a fire – a practice called jauhar.
“Padmavati” is slated to release on December 1.
