Some fans photoshopped Katrina Kaif’s picture on the poster of the movie

Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati look has been the talk of the town and fans cannot get over the first look of Deepika as the legendary Indian Queen.

The first look of Padmavati was released on social media and the pictures and posters have been going viral online. Deepika looks phenomenal as the beautiful Rani Padmini or Padmavati and her pictures have been discussed extensively in the Twitterverse.

While a majority of people have been loving the unibrowed majestic Rani Padmini portrayed by Deepika, there are some who have been trolling the diva, suggesting other ‘fair skinned’ stars should have been reached out for the role.

According to history, Rani Padmini was known as the exceptionally beautiful princess and shameless online trolls have been stating that Deepika does not look majestic or beautiful in the poster.

Deepika’s look for the role of Rani Padmini heavily resembled the paintings of Padmavati that have been preserved over time. The period drama is based on the 13th – 14th century and Deepika’s images as Rani Padmini do complete justice to the role and the pictures.

However, fans said that a better choice for the movie would have been Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or even Katrina Kaif. Some have photoshopped Katrina Kaif’s picture on the Padmavati poster.

Deepika’s portrayal of Rani Padmini exudes her confidence, pride and the undeniable beauty that reflects in the paintings of the queen - and stays true to its time with the minimal makeup and the prominent unibrow.

TIWANA | 6 years ago | Reply Indeed she was very beautiful lady and even dont like Deepika playing her part, not being racist but when you play a historic character traits and physical appearance should resemble. Deepika is hugely talented but she is much more stronger for a delicate and sophisticated character as Rani Padmavati, someone with shorter height and much more sweeter voice and hate to say but a more beautiful actress would have been a better choice, though i dont see bollywood having someone as beautiful as Rani
