This is a royal saga of beauty, loyalty, courage and sacrifice of one of the greatest queens in the annals of Indian history, Rani Padmini.
Padmini is the daughter of King Gandharva Sen and Queen Champavati of Sinhal Dweep. She is an eternal beauty and tales of her exquisiteness mesmerize King Ratan Singh of Chittod. He falls in love with her and marries her, after winning her hand in marriage. An astute reformer and administrator, tales of her beauty and valor reach Allahuddin Khilji, The Sultan of Delhi. The Sultan fantasizes about the queen and wants to acquire her at any cost. But Rani Padmini’s love and loyalty towards Ratan Singh leads her to not only fight Allahuddin Khilji but also commit Johur i.e. sacrificing your life by burning in a huge pyre.
Rani Padmini’s heroic act of preferring death to dishonour made her a legend and even to this day she is considered the epitome of Indian womanhood and personification of sacrifice and valor.
