Rajput Groups Protest In Bengaluru, Demand a Ban

This film is going to release on December 1.

Now, as she prepares for the release of epic drama Padmavati, which clocks her trilogy with the filmmaker, the actress is confident the movie will tide over the controversy, hit the screens and win a "bigger battle" for the industry.

About 30 people were arrested in the case.

While Bhansali and the cast have made statements saying that there is nothing objectionable in the movie, the protesters are not co-operating and want a ban on the movie. The theater has stopped screening the trailer for now. She says that their dedication and the way they put things together to make the film happen push her to give her best, too. And where have we reached as a nation?

Almost 50 activists of Shri Rajput Karni Sena on Tuesay rampaged through a cinema hall in Kota to protest the screening a teaser of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next movie "Padmavati", which the group say distorts historical facts.

Yadav said they were waiting for a complaint from the manager of the cinema hall.

"Ten years ago, thinking that I don't fit the mold of being a Bhansali heroine, and today working in three films with him back-to-back".

The actor added that only the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has the power to decide if the film is suitable for release.

The Karni Sena members had earlier this year vandalised the sets of the film and assaulted Bhansali for portraying queen Padmavati in "bad light". "It's been a pretty incredible journey", said Deepika, who says she senses a soul, heart and mind connect with the director.

The situation for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati is getting stickier by the day.

Even as the release date for the film comes closer, the state government has no plan of action to contain the tension. It stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead role, playing Rani Padmini, Raja Ratan Singh and Alauddin Khilji respectively.
