Padmavati is an upcoming Indian period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali the film features Deepika Padukone in the title role as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh.
After facing many difficulties, finally Padmavati has complete the shoot, and pose to release on December 1.
The film has been in the news for quite a long time now. From rumors about portraying wrong facts in the movie, a worker dying on the set for the film being delayed because of a strike. At present, after the liberation of the trailer, it’s the talk of the town about how grand this project is getting to be.
Still, it looks like troubles for the makers of Padmavati are not over yet!
Like we already know, the Rajput outfit, Jai Rajputana Sangh, is not too happy with the fact that a film on Rani Padmavati and Raja Rawal Ratan Singh is being produced in the first topographic point and has been skeptical of its accurate historical picture from Day 1.
And therefore, in line with that, they have warned the makers that should the film release without being pre-sieved to the Rajput organizations, they will burn down the cinema halls and multiplexes screening them.
Agreeing to a report in Hindustan Times, “We won’t tolerate any distortion of story and if any, romantic relationship is shown between queen Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji, we will burn cinema halls screening the movie,” said Bhanwar Singh Reta, founder, Jai Rajputana Sangh on Sunday.
“Our members are coached in handling a large array of weapons ranging from swords to AK 47 guns. We won’t let anyone dishonor Padmavati and insult the people of Rajasthan,” said Reta.
Reta, claimed that he heads the Sangh, which delivers 2.65 lakh members. “Our demand is that the filmmakers screen it to a jury of representatives from various Rajput organizations. We will just grant them a go-ahead to release the film after we are satisfied that no scene insults queen Padmavati,” said Reta.
The members of the Sangh also criticized Union Information and broadcasting minister Smriti Irani and burnt her effigy.
“Irani had said that the film will face no trouble during its release. We condemn this statement,” said Reta.
