'Wait and watch', says Shahid Kapoor on reviews he got after Padmavati trailer release

Shahid Kapoor spoke about his character Raja Rawal Ratan Singh in the Padmavati trailer and promised there was more to come

When the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati was released, the buzz was about two things – Deepika Padukone’s unibrow and Ranveer Singh’s savage look. Many argued that the trailer of the magnificent period drama did not do justice to Shahid Kapoor who plays the role of  Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. For the first time ever, Shahid explained why his screen time was brief and how the trailer was just the tip of the iceberg.

Speaking about his character, Shahid said it was deliberately underplayed in the trailer. The actor said:

While Shahid chose to stay quiet on the controversies, his co-star Deepika Padukone shunned the rangoli incident on Twitter. A few days ago, a rangoli inspired by Deepika’s look from the magnum opus was destroyed by goons. The artist- Karan, took to Twitter to reveal that it took 48 hours to make it and goons destroyed it in seconds. A furious Deepika then took to Twitter to condemn the incident and also requested the I&B minister Smriti Irani to take action. Here are her tweets:
