Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Padmavati to compete with Baahubali
  • Telugu film Baahubali made its indelible mark in Bollywood with its Hindi version
  • Now Indian cinema has been divided into pre and post Baahubali
  • Till date, no release could reach the mark of Baahubali and now all expectations are pinned on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati

The Hindi version of Telugu Baahubali -2 seems to have affected Bollywood with every film being charted alongside Baahubali. The Indian cinema is divided as pre and post Bollywood and every film is trying to measure up to Baahubali in terms of grandeur and gross.

Salman Khan’s Tubelight was expected to reach the benchmark but didn’t and many subsequent Bollywood films failed to capture the lure of Baahubali.

Now all eyes are set on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama Padmavati slated to release on December 1st with Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh playing the lead roles.

The first look of Deepika and Shahid didn’t bring much excitement, but the recent first look of Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, the most powerful ruler of the Khilji dynasty, has raised the expectations of the film and may give a tough competition to Baahubali.
