Rani Padmini

Rani Padmini: The Heroine of Chittor was consulted extensively by film-maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his magnum opus Padmaavat (2018) and both author and publisher are acknowledged prominently in the film’s credits. An insightful and comprehensive account of the life and times of Rani Padmini, this best-seller continues to be the go-to book on this subject.

Even though not much is known about Padmini, she has emerged as an icon of national honour over the centuries. This book offers fascinating vignettes of her life— her superlative beauty, high sense of virtue, valour and wisdom—and the times she lived in. The politics among Rajput kingdoms and the danger and humiliation that the queens were exposed to is captured in the book.

After researching every relevant literary, archaeological, epigraphic, numismatic and other sources of information, the author not only proves that the illustrious queen of Chittor was, indeed, a historical reality, but also reveals fascinating and multiple facets of her personality.
