The film courted controversy from various fringe groups but the makers went on with the shooting. Injecting the film's essence with his own art and style, film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has himself composed the score in this movie. But what this trailer offers is the regal romance between Padukone's character and her husband Maharawal Ratan Singh, played by Shahid Kapoor. By the end of the trailer, one is sure to get an exhilarating feeling only by the music. "#PadmavatiTrailer MINDBLOWING!". "Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the bonafide master craftsmen of Indian cinema ....breathtaking and magnificent visuals all over #PadmavatiTrailer".
Earlier fans had loved Padukone and Singh's look from the film.
Padmavati seems to be a glorious celebration of heroism and valour brought to us in the deepest shades of love, passion and sacrifice. His films mirror his passion for storytelling in the most lovely way. More than that, one particular scene in which Padmini can be seen next to Ratan Singh as they see Khilji's (Ranveer Singh) army approaching, hints the married couple stood together through thick and thin. There are really no words to describe what we see in the trailer. The lead cast Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh steals the show with their performance. He has to protect his kingdom from Khilji's siege and we also get to see what a fearless king he was. That he is gonna make Padmavati jump into the fire.
The trailer takes us to the era of 1303, when the Delhi Sultanate ruler Alauddin Khalji had captured the Chittor Fort from the Guhila king Ratnasimha, after an eight-month-long siege. He left people gasping for breath with Bajirao Mastani, such was the baroque detailing in each frame in that film.
