Since the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film, Padmavati has announced the controversies have been started and in the current time when the film is ready to hit the screens, people across from India have started opposing the film. The Rajputs from all over the country are protesting against Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone's film as they have made allegations on the filmmaker for showing an insulting image of queen Padmavati in the film.
On the other hand, since many incidents have been happened to the film and its sets, the Bajirao Mastani director has always cleared it that they have not shot any single scene in between Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone portraying the romance between queen Padmavati and Delhi's Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
