Ranveer Singh posted a photo of his upcoming periodic drama film Padmavati on Instagram. Ranveer will be portraying the role of Sultan Alauddin Khilji, the most powerful ruler of the Khalji dynasty. Judging by his fearsome yet royal look on the poster, he seems like a perfect fit for the historic role.
In one of the photos on his Instagram, he is seen sporting a mukut (crown) and scars under his hazel eyes that are staring coldly into a mirror. This perfect blend of royalty, ruthlessness and ruggedness makes him the ideal actor for this role and has left fans even more impatient for the highly anticipated film.
Ranveer Singh’s past characters have been very versatile. From playing lead roles in romantic comedies such as Band Baaja Baaraat to starring in action films like Gunday, his acting is awe-inspiring. His claim to the role of Alauddin Khalji is further cemented by the fact that he has taken roles of historical characters such as Peshwa Bajirao and also starred as the charmingly fearsome Ram Rajadi in Bajirao Mastani and Ram Leela respectively executing both roles to perfection. His past performances make us think “is there anything he can’t pull off?” the answer is an obvious “no.”
This will be the third time that Singh will be collaborating with real-life girlfriend Deepika Padukone and also director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. With Singh’s on-screen chemistry with Padukone and the success they have achieved with Bhansali, we expect nothing less than a classic! We can hardly wait for Padmavati which comes out this December.
