Ranveer Singh is enjoying the best time of his professional life right now.
Not only did the actor receive accolades for his portrayal of Bajirao Peshwa I in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's (SLB) Bajirao Mastani, he also teamed up with Aditya Chopra for the modern romantic saga Befikre which is already poised to be a big hit upon its release in December.
However, it is his next project with SLB that is sure to grab him more than eyeballs.
We are indeed talking about his next magnum opus, Padmavati.
The movie stars Deepika Padukone as the titular Queen, with Shahid Kapoor essaying the role of Rawal Ratan Singh, her husband. But it is Ranveer Singh who is grabbing the headlines for his first out-and-out negative character of Alauddin Khalji.
For those in the dark, the movie is a dramatized account of the 1303 siege of the Chittor fort in Rajasthan. Alauddin Khilji led the invasion, motivated by his desire to capture the beautiful queen Rani Padmini, the wife of Rana Rawal Ratan Singh.
As if the description itself wasn't enticing enough, Ranveer tweeted out a fierce first look at his character.
If those eyes don't send a chill down your spines, we don't know what will!
As the tweet states, the movie will be releasing on November 17. 2017.
We simply just can't wait to lap up more from this highly-anticipated flick anymore!
