In the first photo, Ranveer can be seen posing topless inside water with long hair and beard. The second image features the actor in a warrior costume, posing while looking at the mirror. Interestingly, both photographs feature a bruise underneath the actor's right eye.
Besides Ranveer, Padmavati will feature actress Deepika Padukone in the title role and actor Shahid Kapoor as her husband - MahaRawal Ratan Singh.
Padmavati, which will release on December 1, tells the story of Alauddin Khilji, the medieval-era Delhi ruler, who fell in love with Rajput queen Padmavati.
The film has been through various ups and down while it was under production. Earlier this year, activists of Shri Rajput Karni Sena assaulted Bhansali and vandalised the movie's Jaipur sets over alleged distortions in the film's script. Later on, the film's set was moved to Maharashtra. There, too, an outdoor set of the historic period drama in Kohlapur was burnt down after two dozen unidentified persons torched it in March.
