However, much before its release, the poster got leaked, which forced the 'Padmavati' team to unveil Ranveer's look way before scheduled and Ranveer posted his look on October 3 at 1:45 am. Despite the poster's leak, his intense and evil look in the poster got him rave reviews.
The leak caused everyone in a fury but the man who was the most agitated is Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He is a filmmaker who maintains secrecy around his film's characters and advises the stars to maintain low-profile while filming, to avoid any uncalled circumstances. As a repercussion of the poster's leak, Bhansali has issued an ultimatum to the team of 'Padmavati', which could cost them their job if not abided by.
A source from 'Padmavati's team told india.com, "Bhansali sir is very upset with what happened. He is convinced that while the ones who leaked the look aren't from the team, they got their hands on the Khilji posters thanks to someone in-house. He has issued a strict warning to the entire team which has everybody shocked, shaken and scared." Sanjay Leela Bhansali continues and likes working with his same set of people and doesn't leave them. Be it the PR's, make-up artists, art directors, stylists, etc. But, the consistent leaks from his films are irking Bhansali and has given a strict warning to all of them. "Padmavati is a dear project and it has already seen many lows and blows since it started rolling.
Information leak from the sets or the looks of the important characters getting out before schedule is the last thing he wants. He has sent out a loud and clear message to his team that if anything pertaining to Padmavati is leaked anymore, he will do away with the entire team and get new people on board to work with him on future projects," revealed the source to the portal. The dynamic posters of Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh have been adored by the audiences, and the Bhansali extravaganza is slated to release on December 1, 2017.
