When Padmaavat’s first trailer released, it was still Padmavati and expected to be the biggest release of 2017. The year got over as the Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film faced massive protests, its release was delayed and death threats issued against the director and film’s lead actor Deepika Padukone. Now, that Padmaavat is again inching towards its release, protests are raging in parts of the country despite a go-ahead by Supreme Court.
Caught in the middle of it all, Padmaavat’s team has released two dialogue promos -- while one appears to be the introduction to Ranveer Singh’s Sultan Alauddin Khilji, the other one has the first meeting between Deepika Padukone’s Rani Padmavati and Shahid Kapoor’s Maharawal Ratan Singh.
This is the first promo that features Alauddin Khilji saying a dialogue. In the middle of battle, we hear the sultan say, “Hum Khiljion ne saath milkar ek khwab dekha tha ki ek din hamara parcham saare jahaan pe lehraayega.” Menacing in word and gesture, he then goes on to puts his words into action. This is the first time that we have heard Ranveer say a dialogue in the film as the spotlight has been on Deepika Padukone’s Padmini and Shahid Kapoor who plays her husband, Maharawal Ratan Singh.
In the same promo, we also hear Shahid’s measured tones as he answers Khilji and says Rajputs have more iron in their chests than Khilji has in his sword.
Another dialogue promo has Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor meeting for the first time, their love and marriage. It also has Padmavati talking of war in the face of Khilji’s war on Chittorgarh.
Padmaavat is all set to release on january 25.
