Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan are all mesmerized by the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film and said Padmavati is epic stuff. The trailer shows the true luxurious and extravagant lifestyle of Rani Padmini and Maharawal Ratan Singh played by Shahid Kapoor as well as the seemingly negative character Alauddin Khilji played by Ranveer Singh.

The making of Padmavati, directed by Sanjay Leela Bahnsali, has been fraught with controversies since it was announced.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for making larger-than-life, grand and picturesque movies like Devdas, Bajirao Mastani, Saawariya and Guzaarish. In the scene that shows Deepika sewing Shahid's turban totally wins you over and her enthralling charm just accentuates the beauty.

Deepika plays the queen of Ratansimha or Ratan Singh and it is because of her and the kingdom of Chittor that the war between Khilji and Ratan Singh takes place.

Padmavati is based on the ruthless Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, and his attempt to capture the attractive Rani Padmini of Chittor.

Deepika Padukone looks elegant and suits the role of a princess in the trailer. However, this is Shahid Kapoor's first project with him. Ranveer will be seen as the baddie, playing the role of the menacing Alauddin Khilji.

Later in March, the group vandalized the Chittorgarh Fort.

Bhansali chose a special timing to launch the trailer of "Padmavati".

The period drama movie is jointly produced by Bhansali Productions and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. Deepika Padukone essayed the role of Rani Padmini in the movie and Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari essayed other pivotal roles.

Padmavati is slated to release worldwide on December 1.
