Film Padmavati will see Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, but he is not the only actor to play this role…
Two other Bollywood actors have portrayed the character in the past.
One is everybody’s favorite, late Om Puri and second is Mukesh Rishi.
Om Puri ji played Alauddin Khilji in Shyam Bengal’s famous television series Bharat Ek Khoj. And Mukesh Rishi played Allauddin Khilji in Sony TV’s Chittod Ki Rani Padmini Ka Johur.
But yes, it is the first time that the character is going to be portrayed on the big screen. And alongside Ranveer, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be seen playing the lead roles in SLB’s magnum opus that is set to hit theatres on December 1.
