Maverick filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films are known for grandeur, opulent production values and visual brilliance. He is known as an uncompromising visionary who not just puts his heart and soul in the films that he makes, but conceives similar efforts from his unit members. Movie lovers will be amazed to find out the amount of expense, time and effort went into making the jewellery worn by Deepika Padukone in Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus, ‘Padmavati’.
A noted jewellery brand which had worked on making the jewellery for ‘Padmavati’, revealed that as many as 200 craftsmen worked for 600 days moulding 400 kilos of gold to make the exotic ornaments that Deepika would be seen wearing in the film. Besides the onerous physical effort, an extensive research was also conducted before finalizing the designs of Rani Padmavati’s jewellery and costumes in order to authentically represent the historical period.
All this hard work has paid off in abundance as the first look poster of Deepika and the trailer of Padmavati were met with supremely positive response from movie buffs. Carrying staggering expectations, the historical epic, also starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor will hit screens on December 1, 2017.
