PADMAVATI is in news since long. Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer was slated to release on Friday Decmeber 1 but has been postponed till further notice due to contoversy.
As per media reports, it is said that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus PADMAVATI distorts history regarding Rajput queen Padmavati.
The reports further states that dream sequence featuring Turk emperor Alauddin Khilji and Rajput queen Rani Padmavati were the beginning of the attacks on Bhansali and vandalizing PADMAVATI sets.
However, the PADMAVATI team has time and again clarified that let alone a dream sequence featuring Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmini romancing, Deepika (who plays Padmavati) and Ranveer (who plays Khilji) don't even share screen space in the film.
Media further reported that, some Hindu groups have been protesting against the movie's release while some political outfits have demanded that its release be deferred in view of the Gujarat Assembly elections.
However, there is a new development in PADMAVATI’s release.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that she would welcome Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the team of PADMAVATI with open arms and would make special arrangements for the same.
