Jaipur: On Saturday, Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an association of the Rajput community, burned the posters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly anticipated “Padmavati” which is slated for a December 1 discharge.

A gathering of protesters accumulated on Rajmandir Cinema Hall and yelled slogans against Sanjay Leela Bhansali and burned posters of the film Padmavati.

While shooting in Jaipur Bhansali had guaranteed to show the film to us and history specialists before releasing it. IBut, from that point forward nobody, has reached us, nor has the film been shown to us,” Narain Singh Divrala, district president Jaipur of the Shri Rajpur Karni Sena, told IANS.

We need him to demonstrate the film to the main committee of Shri Rajput Karni Sena and different associations, including antiquarians, before releasing it,” Divrala said.

Till then we won’t able the film to be released,” he included.

In the event that the Karni Sena council and history specialists don’t have any issues at exactly that point will we permit screening of the film,” he included.

We have come to know through media reports that realities and history have been misshaped in the film, and it is unacceptable,” Divrala said.

In January, activists of the Shree Rajput Karni Sena had challenged, mauled and gotten out of hand with the group of Bhansali’s “Padmavati” guaranteeing that he was misshaping authentic realities in the motion picture.


They had additionally harmed a few cameras and different type of types of equipment. Bhansali had to quit shooting.

The Karni Sena asserted that they have a major library and that in no book is it written that Alauddin Khilji, a powerful leader of the Khilji dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate in the 13th-14th century, fell in love Padmavati or that he was her darling.

They are attempting to malign Padmavati by twisting chronicled actualities. It is not satisfactory,” an activist of Karni Sena said.


In March a few blackguards softened the mirrors up Padmini Mahal (royal residence) in Chittorgarh Fort where Ala- ud-din Khilji is believed to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini.

Shri Rajput Karni Sena claims that the mirror was developed a very long time after Padmavati lived and it is totally a false story.

The primary look of Bhansali’s highly anticipated film, including Deepika Padukone, was released recently. The on-screen character plays Rani Padmini or Padmavati of Chittor, close by Ranveer Singh who plays Alauddin Khilji. Shahid Kapoor is playing as Rawal Ratan Singh.
