Ranveer Singh's look as Sultan Alauddin Khilji is finally out and it's everything a fan of the 'energiser bunny', as he is fondly called, would die for (quite literally). Ghastly, kohl-eyed, and ferocious, with a uniquely-styled hair, Ranveer's 'Padmavati' look is what nightmares are made of, and reeks of the adjectives already been given to him - the villain of the piece, the evil, and the lustful megalomaniac. The little scar underneath his eye gives a serious run for money to the original scarface. Making him look even deadlier is the malevolent colour of his eyes, which gives him an even more grungy look.

The swashbuckling actor took to Twitter to introduce the world to the character by posting two posters.
Prior to Ranveer Singh's look, the makers had first revealed Deepika Padukone's look as Rani Padmini following which they revealed Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh.
Deepika Padukone as the beautiful, elegant and unibrowed Queen Padmini aka Padmavati was enough to make the Twitterati fall in love with the gorgeousness of the actress, while Shahid Kapoor as Padmavati's husband, the grim, battle-ravaged Maharawal Ratan Singh was a delight and a revelation.

'Padmavati' is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The movie went through its share of controversies with a fringe Rajput group, Rajasthan's Shri Rajput Karni Sena, vandalising the sets of the movie a couple of times, and even manhandling the director once.
They are said to have issues with how Bhansali is handling the equation between Padmavati and Khilji.
It was also reported that playing Khilji had taken a toll on Ranveer's mind and consequentially, he actually had his friends worried.
The actor is now even planning to go to a psychiatrist to get rid of the Khilji influences.
The magnum opus is all set to hit the screens on December 1.
