In ‘Padmavati’ trailer, Rajput pride and wild-eyed invaders

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali epic is scheduled for a December 1 release.

Numerous tributes to Rajput honour; Alauddin Khilji as a wild-eyed and meat-chomping invader; Deepika Padukone as a glistening symbol of honour: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati should keep his detractors happy.

The trailer of Bhansali’s latest historical epic was released at 13.03pm: a supposed reference to 1303 AD, when Khilji conquered Chittor.

Based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s epic poem Padmavat, the film features Padukone as the fictional queen Padmini of Chittor. Shahid Kapoor stars as her husband Rawal Ratan Singh while Ranveer Singh plays the antagonist, whose lust for Padmini leads to war and destruction. Jim Sarbh plays Khilji’s scheming advisor. The film is scheduled to be released on December 1.

Padmavati (2017).

The shooting of Padmavati has faced several roadblocks from Rajasthan-based right wing groups, who have accused Bhansali of distorting history and glorifying Khilji. Later, sets in Kolhapur in Maharashtra were set ablaze by unverified miscreants with petrol bombs.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
