On Mon­day, the trailer of the highly an­tic­i­pated film, San­jay Leela Bhansali’s (SLB) Pad­ma­vati was launched and was re­ceived with an over­whelm­ing re­sponse. Star­ring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ran­veer Singh, the film prom­ises to be an ex­trav­a­gant cine­matic ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Mo­tion Pic­tures, says, “I am thrilled at the kind of re­sponse pour­ing in from across the world for our trailer. As pro­duc­ers, we have put in our best in the film. San­jay is in top form here, weav­ing an in­ten­sity and in­trigue about all the three prin­ci­ple char­ac­ters on a grand can­vas. Be­sides San­jay, the ac­tors too have hit per­fect notes. The trailer has set an all-time high wa­ter­mark on peak view­er­ship within 24 hours, beat­ing all other land­mark films re­cently. I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the au­di­ences for all their love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion.”

Deepika says, “SLB brings out the best in me as an ac­tor. The way he pushes you, chal­lenges you... That’s what drives me to do his films.” Call­ing Bhansali a “ge­nius” and “master crafts­man”, Shahid says, “It is so dif­fi­cult to ex­plain the magic of work­ing with him. He has a plethora of tal­ent within him. It’s been a mag­i­cal jour­ney. I feel very for­tu­nate.”

Ran­veer too is all praises for the film-maker. “Bhansali has opened my eyes, ex­panded my uni­verse and given me wings to fly. He’s brought out cer­tain as­pects which I never re­alised I had within me. He has had a pro­found in­flu­ence on me and has molded me into the artiste that I am to­day,” he says.

Viacom18 Mo­tion Pic­tures and San­jay Leela Bhansali’s Pad­ma­vati is all set for a world­wide re­lease on De­cem­ber 1, 2017.
