As planned, the Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh starrer 'Padmaavat', finally hit the theatres all across the country. The good news is, amidst all the controversy and tension; people have welcomed the historical drama with open arms.
Most of the cine goers have given the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial the thumbs up. While Ranveer Singh's portrayal of Sultan Alauddin Khilji seems to have won over everyone, Deepika and Shahid's performances too were appreciated. One enthusiastic cine lover said, "The scale of 'Padmaavat' is greater than that of 'Bajirao Mastani'." One viewer also compared the movie to the SS Rajamouli epic 'Baahubali' as she said, "After 'Baahubali' if you would love to watch a movie like that, then it's definitely 'Padmaavat'."
