The performances of all the three stars have been appreciated in "Padmaavat". Deepika plays Rani Padmini of Chittor and Shahid is Maharawal Ratan Singh (her husband) in the film. Ranveer Singh stars as Alauddin Khilji. Of playing Khilji in the film, Ranveer Singh, told news agency IANS, "It is extremely rare and overwhelming to get this kind of love from the audience." Before the film's release, Deepika had said, "I'm not someone who gets excited about the box office numbers but this time I am, because I think it will be earth-shattering," PTI reported.
"Padmaavat"'s release date was postponed for over a month due to several protests. Later, the CBFC gave a green signal to the film's release, suggesting five modifications, including the title. "Padmaavat" was earlier titled Padmavati.
"Padmaavat" is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's third association with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, after Ram-Leela and Bajiro Mastani.
