New Delhi: Team Padmavati have created much suspense around Ranveer Singh's look as Alauddin Khilji in the movie. While the first look posters of Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini and Shahid Kapoor as her husband Raja Ratan Singh were released in September, Ranveer's was not. But hang on folks, the wait is almost over. Ranveer Singh is all set to make his debut on social media as Alauddin Khilji tomorrow, announced Deepika and Shahid, and Ranveer of course. "Sultan Alauddin Khilji arrives tomorrow morning," tweeted the Bajirao Mastani actor. Team Padmavati have been shooting for almost a year now, for which Ranveer Singh has sported a heavily bearded and mustachioed look. In a surprising stunt last month, he got rid of his previous look for a clean shaven one to play the younger version of the Khilji ruler.
