Indian history holds a pool of unknown and unheard tales. These tales are so interesting that the more you read about them the more interest you build. I think this is the major reason why filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali keeps moving to the old history and drama in search for a perfect story for his films. He is all set for his next release Padmavati which deals with the life of ruler Alauddin Khilji and various other historical characters. 

Khilji is known as the second and the most powerful ruler of Khilji dynasty but unlike every ruler, there have been various instances and facts that are under the covers. 

We have created a list of some of the unknown and important facts that everyone must know about this ruler before we watch Ranveer Singh play his role in theatres.
