Ranveer, 31, who is playing Alauddin Khilji, the second Sultan of the Khilji Dynasty in the film, announced its release date on Twitter in Roman numerals.



The picture captured an intense look of Ranveer's kohled eyes with some battle scars on his forehead.

Ranveer is also awaiting the release of his romantic drama Befikre. Set for December 9 release, the film directed by Aditya Chopra, also stars Vaani Kapoor.

Ranveer and Deepika have previously worked with Bhansali in Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani. A few days ago rumours were rife with the reports of 'Raman Raghav' actor Vicky Kaushal having turned down the role of Deepika's husband in the film as the actor believed he had a very small part to play in the film.
