The controversy, protests, threats and the political drama around the film ‘Padmavati’ will remain in the history of Bollywood. Ever since the epic period saga of Rani Padmavati is announced, the film-makers and actors are confronting the hate and protest.
The movie which started with vandalizing of sets from Rajput Karni Sena of Rajasthan is now been receiving fumes of hatredness as more states are joining the protest. Delhi’s BJP leader recently announced Rs.10 crore bounty for beheading Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leele Bhansali.
Considering ongoing situation which may cause serious problems, Viacom18 Motion Pictures have decided to defer the film’s release date.
