Controversy is yet not over on release of Bhansali’s Padmavati. In a fresh incident, Rajput Karni threatens the Film Director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali over Padmavati’s release. On Thursday, news erupted that Rajput Karni Sena threatens, beheading Sanjay Leela Bhansali and offer a prize of 5 crores for beheading the renowned maker, Bhansali. In February Rajput Karni Sena assaulted Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his team on the sets of Padmavati in Rajgarh fort, Jaipur. A few days back Actress Deepika Padukone who is portraying “Rani Padmavati” character in the movie sparked controversy by her statement, “It’s appalling, it’s absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed.”
In response, Politician and MP Subhramaniam swami replied by saying” Cine actress Deepika Padukone giving us a lecture on regression!! The nation can progress only when it is a regression from her perspective.”
Ironically and interestingly the Supreme body for the Rajput community is Rajput Sabha Bhawan, not Rajput Karni Sena and filmmakers are trying their best to convince them and make a smooth way for their film release.
The movie “Padmavati” is a period drama, starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor, as Maha Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh, as Sultan Alauddin Khilji is slated to hit the theatres on December 1.
