To people who don’t know, the controversy against the film started after the members of a Rajput group, Karni Sena, protested against Padmavati for alleging distorting historical facts by the filmmaker. The shooting of the film was stopped in Jaigarh fort while director Sabbath Leela Bhansali was physically attacked, which had triggered outrage in the film industry.
A few months back, the state minister of Rajasthan had made it clear that the film will not be released in Rajasthan till it is shown to the Rajput community leaders.
While the movie’s trailer is receiving great response from the audiences, the fear still looms for the makers of the film. Starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles, Padmavati is hitting the screens on Dec. 1.
