Shahid Kapoor’s look in Sanjay Leela Bhanasali’s ‘Padmavati’ is out and the 36-year-old Bollywood actor is killing us with his fierce and royal look.
A week after Deepika Padukone stunned one and all with her royal look from Padmavati, the makers of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film treat the fans by revealing the first look of Shahid, who essays the role of King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in the period drama.
The makers of ‘Padmavati’ took to Twitter on Monday morning to unveil Shahid’s look. A post on the film’s official Twitter handle read, “महारावल रतन सिंह. साहस, सामर्थ्य और सम्मान का प्रतीक. #Padmavati #MaharawalRatanSingh @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial.”

As evident from the poster, Shahid wears a thick beard, a long red ‘tika’ and completes the royal look by accessorizing it with men’s earrings. But what really grabs the attention is the scar which goes on to explain his heroic leadership.

Shahid flaunts a heavily bearded look in the poster with jewellery adding to his royal and intense look.
Earlier, Shahid had revealed what went into making his character of the ‘Maharawal’ a reality, “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 (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) wanted 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.”
In Padmavati, Deepika is playing Rani Padmini aka Padmavati of Chittore, alongside Ranveer Singh’s Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor’s Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. The film is also produced by Bhansali Pictures and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
It is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
