Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s much-awaited period drama Padmavati has already created a storm on social media. After releasing mesmerizing character posters, the makers of Padmavati released the first trailer on Monday afternoon that has got everyone aboard the hype train. The trailer looked spectacular and has received an immense amount of response from the fans.
Ranveer Singh, who plays Sultan Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati, was overwhelmed by the response he received for his the film especially his character. Humbled by the response, Ranveer shared a heartfelt letter calling it “unprecedented” and “rare“.
Here’s Ranveer Singh’s note:
“Senior peers, friends in the media and the trade, and most of all our BELOVED AUDIENCE…
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you who have been so generous in effusively showering love and appreciation for our trailer. To witness this avalanche of praise across the board is unprecedented and overwhelming. It’s very rare ..and very, very humbling.
It’s a result of the blood, sweat and tears that our Team has poured into this mammoth effort. Sanjay sir, my crazy genius, the master craftsman.. has fought, suffered and sacrificed for this film — the success of this trailer is a testament to his sheer tenacity and iron will. What you’re seeing is the vision of a deeply passionate artist who has bared his infinite soul on celluloid. He is tireless and unrelenting in his pursuit of excellence. I am blessed to have had the privilege of being directed by him–he nurtures me and I learn from him and grow every day.
I am still shooting the movie (just the last few days left now) so, unfortunately, I’m not able to reply to each one of you kind folks individually, like I usually do. But it’s so very heartening to read everything you all have said.
Having said this, I assure you, that what you’ve seen thus far is just a tiny fraction of what this film has to offer.
I will see you in the cinema halls on December 1st for what all of us in Team Padmavati hope will be an unforgettable cinematic experience for you all.
