Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming magnum opus Padmavati is facing trouble since its announcement. Now even when the movie is close to its release, the protests against it are not stopping. 

As reported by a leading daily, on Sunday, a women group in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi protested against Bhansali's Padmavati alleging that he has distorted historical facts in it. The government in the state had assured that theatres there will be provided full security and nothing can harm the movie's release.

These women were protesting holding rolling pins in their hands, several banners against SLB by International Kshatriya Veerangana Mahasabha. It is an organisation representing Rajput women. During the protest, these women also burnt Bhansali's effigy at Lahurabeer in Varanasi. 

Even the Rajput Karni Sena, several political leaders and now Mewar Royal are against the movie's release. They all believe that the Devdas director has shown a romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmini (played by Deepika Padukone) and Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh). 

The director had cleared it several times that Padmavati has no such scenes and he made the movie with a lot of responsibility and hard work. In a video, Bhansali said that he has always been inspired by Rani Padmavati and that this film is a tribute to her bravery and sacrifice. He clarified and assured everyone that there is no such scene. The filmmaker also assured everyone that the dignity and pride of the Rajput community have been respected. 

Padmavati also stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead role. The movie is slated to release on December 1, 2017.

Lol. Indians always overact. You don't see this happening in Hollywood or Korea.

Ammazing news

Congress strategy

They want money... simple

Why it's happens only in India. Let the movie release first

Good news

Are this people crazy. Only happens in India.

Yea bann it

Are these people out of their minds. Why are women in Varanasi worried about a fictitious story from seven hundred years ago. What is wrong with all these groups and communities. They all never showed up for the rapes that happen, for the uneducated, poverty, girl child abandonment, health problems or so many other real issues. Cheap that all these groups are looking for two mins air time using a film as a reason. I wish Padmavati unit all the best and I'm sure the film will do great business

They were paid by the politicians. SIMPLE
