The movie also stars: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor are in the lead roles.
The chief minister of the Gujarat state called as Vijay Rupani stated, “The government and management of Gujarat will not allow and permit ‘Padmavati’ – as this particular movie will certainly hurt the sentiments, tradition and culture of Rajputs – if it gets released in the state. We can’t allow and permit our times past and history to be imprecise. We have complete faith and we believe in freedom of expression and speech but any kind of foul play with our pure and great ethnicity will not be accepted in any kind of circumstances.” Gujarat is in the middle of an antagonistic election battle among the BJP and Congress, which has governed and managed it for around 23 years.
“Padmavati”, made for 195 Crore, has aggravated several protests from few groups which is led by the Karni Sena, who states that Rani Padmini, the 13th-century queen was the most graceful Rajput warrior queen; she is criticized in the motion picture as it suggests a romantic relationship between her and sultan Alauddin Khilji, who is based in Delhi. After her husband was killed and murdered in battle ground, Queen Padmini had set herself on fire to stay away from being taken imprisoned by Sultan Khilji, who was gripped with her charm and beauty.
“Padmavati” stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in the main role and is directed by the famous and most talented film maker – Mr. Bhansali, who has stated the film does not “misrepresent our history” or allude to a love tale between the Sultan Khilji and queen Padmini. Both Ms Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhanshali have been given a strict state security after the leader Karni Sena and other political leaders threatened them with aggression.
