“The excitement that is there for Padmavati with the posters and the trailers, this Diwali is extra special,” Deepika stated. 

 The actress added, “According to me, the film has already released. It’s that kind of an excitement. I can’t wait, as we know what all is there in the movie and how much is left for us to show the audience. I feel that the film should release now. It’s been extremely overwhelming and tiring as well. There was a lot of hard work and challenges that we had to face. We’ve still overcome those and did what we wanted to do. With the same spirit, we’ll go forward and nothing can stop this film."

Deepika revealed, "Before this, it had happened with Cocktail. Even now, Veronica is in my system somewhere hidden inside me. And, I feel the same with Padmavati. Her soul is in me and I can feel her in my system for many years. I don’t think it’s going to leave my system for a while. It’s her power, it’s her strength, it’s her conviction, it’s her courage.”

 Padmavati is slated to release on December 1, 2017.
