Padmavatia s Ek Dil Ek Jaan: Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone songa s 5 unforgettable moments. Watch video
Padmavati love ballad Ek Dil Ek Jaan puts focus on Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukonea s amazing chemistry. We bring you five moments that stand out in the song.
Deepika Padukonea s Rani Padmavati is the strength of Shahid Kapoora s Maharawal Ratan Singh and portraying it in gloriously coloured visuals is Padmavatia s second song, Ek Dil Ek Jaan. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the filma s director, is known for giving the audience spectacle but in the second song of the film, the focus is firmly on emotions. Along with Rajput royals, Deepikaa s Padmavati and Shahida s Maharawal are essentially two people in love. So, while their backs stay ramrod straight during war and peace, their eyes speak of their love.
The love ballad opens as a worried looking Shahid looks up to see Deepika smiling down at him from a balcony. His brow is no longer furrowed and he is smiling now. It is moments like these that Ek Dil Ek Jaan is filled with. Making it even more melancholy is the juxtaposition of Padmavati-Ratan Singh love story as it goes from the days of peace to war waiting to happen. The reason, of course, is Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji who is waiting at Chittora s door.
Before we share five unforgettable moments from Ek Dil Ek Jaan, here is the song itself. Sharing the song, Deepika tweeted, An epic love ballad… #EkDilEkJaan @FilmPadmavati.
Watch: Padmavati second song Ek Dil Ek Jaan
Ek Dil Ek Jaan is written by AM Turaz and composed by filma s director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Shivam Pathak has lent his voice for the romantic number. The 2.5-minute video shows some intimate moments betweenA Deepika and Shahid. So, what really stood out in the song? We give you five beautiful moments from Padmavatia s Ek Dil Ek Jaan…
Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone chemistry
Padmavati helps her husband dress and while it begins with royal robes and ornate turban, we soon see battle gear and chain mail armour. What doesna t change is the love the two have, shown only through their eyes fixated on each other.
Eyes do the talking
Deepika Padukone expresses with her eyes and her liquid expressions make for the best moments in the song.
Romance and tradition
Padmavati and Ratan Singha s romance unfolds within strict confines of tradition but the passion is beautifully shown.
Shahid Kapoora s subtle performance
We expect Ranveer Singha s Alauddin Khilji to be flamboyant and Shahida s understated performance as Ratan Singh will be a perfect foil.
If it is Sanjay Leela Bhansali, expect every frame to be picture perfect and Padmavati is no exception.
Earlier, speaking about working with Shahid Kapoor for the first time in Bhansalia s film, Deepika said, Shahid and I have known each other for so many years, but a special film like Padmavati brought us together onscreen. His contribution to this film is irreplaceable. It was important to have a good actor, with a strong screen presence and massive popularity to add to this film. Shahid brought that with him. While Shahid is the new entrant to the team, Ranveer and Deepika are teaming with Bhansali for the third time. They have earlier delivered hits such as Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and Bajirao Mastani (2015).
Padmavatia s first song, Ghoomar, focussed on Deepikaa s Padmavati alone, and was well received. While Padmavati is winning accolades for its sumptuous visuals, it has been in the thick of controversy as well.
PadmavatiA is facing a ban call with fringe Rajput groups protesting against an alleged romantic sequence between Padmavati and Khilji . Both Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the filma s team has dismissed these rumours. As the filma s release approaches, the controversies have got a new lease of life. In the past two days, the Supreme Court and the Allahabad High Court have dismissed petitions seeking ban on the film. The film is yet to be certified by Central Board of Film Certification.
