Want to see if the trailer is really worth the praises? Watch the trailer of Padmavati here:
Padmavati is the story of Rani Padmini of Chittor, who allegedly performed jauhar (along with hundreds of Rajput women) when Alauddin Khilji invaded the fort of Chittor. The film has been paned by a Rajput Outfit (Karni Sena) which first vandalized the film's set while it was shot in Jaipur and also attacked Mr Bhansali. Later, when the first look poster of Padmavati released on social media, some members of the outfit burned those posters. Even now, as the film's release date has been set for December 1, the Rajput outfit has vowed that they'd not let the film release in certain parts of India.
Padmavati also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh.
