If controversy had a name and face, it’d be ‘Padmaavat’. The film has been surrounded with controversy ever since it was released.


To the point that they even had to change its name from ‘Padmavati’ to ‘Padmaavat’ which was the name of the poem the entire film is based on

The film’s release date also had to be changed from the 1st of December

They plundered his sets, they threatened his actors, and they stalled the release of the film by months. They raised objections on the depiction of Rani Padmini in the film. And were unaccepting of the plot line and the alleged ‘dream sequence’ between Allaudiin Khilji and Rani Padmini


Those acting in the film weren’t even allowed to promote it

With an insane bounty on Deepika and Bhansali’s heads, the actors were advised to stay put and not promote the film. There were dummies hung from bridges as a warning to the producers and directors and actors of the film. There was a call to cut Deepika’s nose and bring it in to the Karni Sena, as well…


However, that’s in the past, and the film is going to be released and what’s bigger is that in spite of all the reports that said otherwise, it’s releasing in Pakistan!

With initial reports and reviews coming out, for the film, and it’s evident that a big majority is absolutely in love with it
