Earlier, we had reported that Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be treading once again into the path of a period drama with the epic saga of a beautiful queen named Rani Padmini or rather Padmavati. From what we hear, Bhansali's blue eyed girl Deepika Padukone will be seen in the titular role of Padmavati in this drama.
Based on the obsessive lover of Padmavati, Allaudin Khilji, the film traces the journey of a loyal yet beautiful queen who decides to end her life after her husband Ratan Singh gets defeated in a war waged by Allaudin over his obsession to gain the love of Rani Padmini. Speculations have it that the film will also star Ranveer Singh but the character he will be playing is yet to be revealed. Padmavati is slated to release on December 15, 2017.
