Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor shine in the new video for the song Ek Dil Ek Jaan, an epic love ballad between a brave king and a courageous queen, from the year’s most anticipated film PADMAVATI. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, this special motion picture event will be released in North America in 3D on December 1.
Set in 1303 AD medieval India, Padmavati is the story of honour, valour and obsession. Queen Padmavati is known for her exceptional beauty and is the wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh and pride of the Kingdom of Chittor, a prosperous kingdom in the north west of India. The legend of her beauty reaches the reigning sultan of Hindustan – Allaudin Khilji. The sultan who is a tyrant, is fixated with wanting anything that is of exceptional beauty for himself.
He lays siege on the impregnable fortress of Chittorgarh. After a gruelling 6 months, He returns back to Delhi empty handed. He becomes obsessed and now wants to capture Chittor and its Queen at any cost. He returns back with a bigger army and raging fury. He attacks Chittor with brutal force and a bloody and fearsome battle takes places between the righteous Maharawal Ratan Singh defending his kingdom and the honour of his queen and Sultan Allaudin Khilji. Khilji manages to breach the fortress but in vain as the Queen chooses to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect her dignity.
