The demonic, obsessed Khilji comes alive again in the new gripping poster from the upcoming Bhansali epic.
Padmavati poster: Swag, grandeur, and pure evil — Ranveer Singh nails it again

The 13th century monarch Alauddin Khilji was a ruthless dictator and a man full of himself. Going by the trailer and the posters, so far, Ranveer Singh seems to have totally immersed himself into his Khilji character. The makers of Padmavati released a new poster of Alauddin Khilji, and Singh leaves you stunned, yet again.
Perched on a throne, adorned with royal jewellery, feet placed on fur, Khliji looks like a picture of swag, grandeur, possessed by evil and greed. Singh’s kohl-rimmed eyes, stoic expression emanate the character's nefarious thought process. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems to have unearthed the monster in Singh.
You can’t help, but bow to this Khilji. Despite playing the antagonist, it is Singh who has managed to create great hype around the film.
Padmavati is set to be released on 1 December.
