Finally the trailer of the eagerly awaited Padmavati is out. The ovation is thundering and deafening. Exhausted and elated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali says, “It’s been a journey of great stress and awakening. I’ve given my blood sweat and tears to Padmavati. Now when people have given their approval in such a big way I am overwhelmed and anxious. The feedback is humbling. I hope the film lives up to all the heightened expectations.”
The director, no stranger to getting raves months before his films are released has had everyone from Amitabh Bachchan to Rekha congratulating him. Filmmakers as disparate as Karan Johar and S S Rajamouli have come forward to express their admiration for the trailer of Padmavati.
Earlier plans were to dub the film in French for the Paris release. But this move was seen as detrimental to the mood and flavour of the film. Padmavati’s Parisian version would now be released with French subtitles.
Incidentally Ranveer Singh who plays the arch-villain in Padmavati shares a special affinity to Paris after he shot for Aditya Chopra’s Befikre in Paris.
