Shahid Kapoor Stuns As a King in Padmavati’s New Poster


The makers of Padmavati movie have revealed Shahid Kapoor’s looks as Maharawal Ratan Singh and in two words – it’s GRAND.

Gone is the boy-next-door looks and in place, we have a bearded and bruised man with a piercing gaze. Both posters show Shahid Kapoor as an epitome of valours, war and strength.

Shahid Kapoor plays the role of King of Chittod and Rani Padmavati’s husband in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-awaited period drama. Talking about his royal look in the movies, Shahid Kapoor had earlier said,

“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.”


Now that Deepika and Shahid have shown their magnificent screen presence, it’s time for Ranveer Singh to take the centre stage with his first look as Alauddin Khilji.
