On Koffee With Karan season 5 earlier this year, star wife Mira Rajput made a stunning appearance on national television for the first time. While there, she confessed that if there was one film starring husband Shahid Kapoor where she’d have loved to play a part, Mira said, “Padmavati“. Having read the script of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s December 1 release, Mira was already won over and left looking forward to the film’s journey from paper to the big screen.Also Read - Ranveer Singh Starrer 83 Gets a Release Date | Watch Teaser
So when Shahid Kapoor’s much awaited look from Padmavati as Maharawal Ratan Singh was unveiled yesterday, we couldn’t help but get curious about Mira’s reaction to it. The look certainly reminded us of his signature line from his acclaimed performance in 2016’s Udta Punjab, ‘Who is the Gabroo?’ Complete with a scar on his face, a red ’tilak’ akin to the ‘Rajwadas’ from Rajasthan, kohl lined eyes and the beard and long hair – Shahid looked rugged and hot! No wonder then, he sent Twitter in an overdrive mode with the two posters. Also Read - Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt Tap Their Feet To ‘Brown Munde’ At AP Dhillon’s Concert In Gurugram | Watch

India.com got in touch with the actor, who was already feeling overwhelmed by the tsunami of love he was receiving on social media for his look. When we asked about what his wifey’s felt about his Maharawal Ratan Singh character, the superstar said, “Mira is extremely happy with the Maharawal look, especially impressed by the beefy avatar.” Who wouldn’t be! Shahid is looking extremely drool worthy in his never seen before look as the Rajput king. And this, complemented with the actor’s impeccable acting will certainly make the film an experience worth waiting for.
So far, we have seen Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati and her onscreen husband Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh. Next, all eyes are set to see Shahid’s main nemesis in the film, Ranveer Singh as Allaudin Khilji. From what we hear, the look will be revealed by the end of this week, either on Thursday or Friday. Till then, stay tuned to India.com for the latest Bollywood updates.
