Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much awaited magnum opus and period drama Padmavati has been making waves, more so after its posters and theatrical trailer was out. The film looks rich in emotions, entertainment and action and as expected, the three leading actors of the film – Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor – look brilliant.
