The Asian Age reported that Deepika's jewellery in Padmavati is rumoured to be weighing around 20 kg. That is a lot of weight, and if it is true, Deepika certainly had a tough time shooting with all those heavy jewels on her body.

Not just the accessories, the diva's costume in the movie also appears to be very heavy. However, this is how queens of that era used to dress up, according to the film's costume designer Rimple Narula.

"Sanjay Leela Bhansali constantly uses the word 'pure' to describe what he is looking for and that's exactly what we have done. The fabrics used throughout the film are organic, which makes them airy. Everything is hand-woven. A lot of intricate work has gone into every aspect. Yes, many have been talking about the weight of the costumes, but we haven't created something that is impossible to don. The royalty did dress like this at that point of time," the designer told the publication.

While many had appreciated Deepika's look in the poster, many others expressed dislike at the unibrow that the actress donned. However, she chose to ignore the negative comments and thanked fans for the overwhelming response. Check the two posters here:
