Padmavati controversy: Shri Rajput Karni Sena members vandalise Kota mall

Meanwhile, senior VHP leader Acharya Dharmendra said a case should be lodged against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali over "Padmavati" and senior Congress leader Rameshwar Dudi demanded a ban on the controversial film.

Tn the prior incident, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was slapped and the film's set was vandalized by the members of a Rajput group in Jaipur.

Last week, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali released a video clarifying about the rumoured dream sequences in the film, but protests continue to grow and Deepika said she has nothing to comment about that. "If they take law in their hands, then they will be punishable under law".


"As a woman, I feel proud to be a part of this film, and to tell this story, which needs to be told".

This period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.

Padmavati is based on the legend of Rani Padmini, a Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat - an Avadhi language epic poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540. What have we gotten ourselves into? Simply because the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which has ostensibly cleared the film, is a statutory body that falls under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India. And where have we reached as a nation? Swami lashed out on Twitter and wrote, " Deepika Padukone giving us lecture on regression! "It's been a pretty incredible journey", said Deepika, who says she senses a soul, heart and mind connect with the director. Deepika said that the movie will release as per schedule, on December 1. She says that their dedication and the way they put things together to make the film happen push her to give her best, too. Many have come in support of the film, stating that a film should be taken as a film and nothing more.
