Talking about Ranveer’s look in the movie, who is playing a negative role for the first time in his so far filmi career, the actor’s look does shoots a vibe of negative aura with his long hairs, an arrogant facial appearance and his growling eyes, gives a little insight into how the Bajirao Mastani actor will be something like ‘Sultan Alauddin Khilji’.

Injecting the film’s essence with his own art and style, film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has himself composed the score in this movie.
A few days ago, Shahid Kapoor‘s look, who is playing the role of a King in the movie was released. Speaking on his role, Shahid had said, “When you are playing a King, you need to have a certain personality. At that time, the people used to not be very skinny and lean, so you need to have a manly personality. Basically for that, and to carry those outfits also, Sanjay sir wants me to be a little muscular and a little full. But I will be gaining weight in terms of muscle and not in terms of fat. This is because I am playing the character of a warrior. The Rajput kings had very strong personalities.”
