Sanjay Leela Bhansali has released the poster of his movie Padmavati, a period drama on the 14th century Queen of the same name. What the ace director was expecting has happened – people have noticed the ‘imperfection’ he had intentionally introduced in the protagonist’s looks.
Take a look at the poster below and see if you can spot it.
Yes, it is Deepika’s unibrow (or should we say Padmavati’s unibrow?)
This small addition to Padmavati’s personality by the director has added extra charm to the legend who lived life on her own terms. Some believe she is just a legend, while others believe she lived in the fort of Chittor before she died proving that she was a one-man woman.
It is believed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been hugely influenced by painter par excellence Frida Kahlo, who always proudly sported her unibrow. In fact, she wore her unibrow like a statement and not a gimmick.
Coming back to Padmavati back home, Deepaki’s unibrow has won her fans. At least on the social media. Check out some of the immediate Twitter reactions to Padmavati’s unibrow –

We have a small concern with brouhaha (pun intended!) around Deepika’s unibrow. Didn’t Kajol sport it for 20 years and yet now Deepika gets to rock it?!
