The film is based on Rani Padmini, a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi language epic poem, written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540. The song "Ek Dil Ek Jaan" is pictured on Deepika Padukone, the leading lady of the film, and Shahid Kapoor, who will be seen as Maharawal Ratan Singh of Chittorgarh.

Johar, whose last directorial venture "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan and Imran Abbas, had a hard time in getting a smooth release, was also present at the event.

The movie, which also stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, is all set to hit the theatres on December 1.
