After releasing series of interesting royal looks of Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh from his much-awaited historical drama Padmavati, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali released the trailer of the film today.
The maker chose to release the trailer of the film at 1.03 pm today. But the timing of the trailer launch is quite odd and left everyone shocked. Well, Bhansali, who is known for perfection in his work, has an interesting reason to elaborate behind it well. As per the history, Alaudin Khijli and Raja Ratan Singh, the characters of Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor essayed in the film, had a face off for the first time in 1303.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted, “. @deepikapadukone , @shahidkapoor and @RanveerOfficial ‘s #PadmavatiTrailer releases @ 13:03 bcos it was in 1303 AD King & Khilji faced off.”

As per the facts of Wikipedia also, “In 1303, Alauddin Khalji, the Turkic ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, laid siege to the Chittor Fort in Rajputana. According to Padmavat, Khalji led the invasion motivated by his desire to capture Rani Padmini. (as mentioned in Padmavat,an epic poem written in 1540 CE.)”
The film is slated to release on December 1.
