Deepika Padukone seeks blessings for PADMAAVAT's smooth release

The controversy around PADMAAVAT refuses to die. Even after the film being postponed and the film's title being changed with seeking cuts and approval of CBFC too, PADMAAVAT's release is still dubious, as there are constant threats from Karni Sena group pan India. Since its just two days left for the film to hit the screens finally, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone made a visit to Siddhivinayak temple on tuesday to seek blessings for the smooth release, after the Supreme Court gave the final go-ahead for the release of the film. She was seen in a white suit and bit tensed. She made a lone visit to the temple sans Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

PADMAAVAT is an upcoming Indian epic period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Deepika Padukone stars as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh, and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji. Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad, and Anupriya Goenka also feature in supporting roles. Based on the epic poem PADMAAVAT, the film is scheduled for release on 25 January 2018.
