Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat got an official theatrical release on January 25 and despite threats from the fringe outfits, the film has managed to garner attention and viewers in large numbers.
Bhansali's magnum opus has left everyone in awe of his film and the cast's performance including Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Not just the viewers, but Bollywood celebrities too, are all praises for the film. While most of them have showered love on social media, Ranbir Kapoor's parents and veteran actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor personally praised Deepika for her stellar act as Rani Padmavati.
The two sent Deepika a bouquet of flowers with a hand-written note that read, "Excellent work! So very proud of you. Love Neetu & Rishi Kapoor."
Deepika was quick to thank them for the gesture and took to social media to share the special moment. She wrote, "it was so lovely seeing both of you yesterday...Thank You for all the love & appreciation! @neetu54 #RishiKapoor" alongside a photograph of the bouquet.
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor was also snapped at a special screening along with Alia Bhatt.
Both Ranveer and Shahid, too, are getting praises for their performances as Allaudin Khilji and Maharawal Ratan Singh. The film has so far minted Rs. 5 crore with just paid previews and is also off to a rock-solid start overseas.
