Merely by the trailers and these dialogue promos it is about confirmed that Padmaavat will be Deepika Padukone’s career best performance and she has done some fantastic work like Bajirao Mastani and Cocktail in the past. These teaser showcases Deepika in a fierce queen avatar who will not bow down to Allaudin Khilji even if Maharawal Ratan Singh loses the battle against him. Padmini is telling fellow ladies that if in case Khilji enters the fort of Chittorgarh than all of them will set themselves on fire and it is a courageous thing to do.
Khilji and his soldiers were known to rape women and loot the cities they were able to conquer and it would go against the dignity of Rajput women hence they decided to set themselves on fire, literally. The audacity and power with which Deepika delivered those lines was astonishing and if this film was made in Hollywood then Deepika would have got the academy award for best actress hands down. Her standard of performance and devotion to character is unheard of in Hindi cinema. No wonder she is literally the highest paid actress of all time charging a whooping 13 crore for her portrayal of queen Padmini.
It is this dedication towards the film and labor of love that finally Padmaavat is crossing all the controversial and violent bridges. Padmaavat has the censor certificate now, four state ban is lifted from the film by the honorable supreme court in a historic judgement and Akshay Kumar has postponed his film Padman to avoid the clash with Padmaavat. All the doors of success which were blatantly closed are now open for viacom 18, Sanjay Bhansali and star cast of the film. Padmaavat has been made with the budget of 200 crores so it will have to use all the audience it can get and hype around the film is simply unreal.
