The much awaited trailer for “Padmavati” was released on Monday, and was an instant whirlwind on the internet, racking up 20 million views in a day. The movie's strong star cast which includes Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone is definitely a reason, but the fact that it is also directed by master filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali also plays a big part in the hype it has generated.
On Wednesday, Shahid shared a cryptic message on his official Instagram account about his character 'Maharawal Ratan Singh' in the movie. Alongside the photo, he wrote, “Still waters run deep. He will rise on the 1st of December. Wait for it. #rajputpride.”
In the photo, he can be seen flaunting his chiseled body, forging a sword in the fire.
The film is scheduled to release on December 1.
