The rumour is that in the movie, a dream scene has been filmed between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji.

From the destruction of the movie set to BJP members seeking a ban on the film, the Supreme Court of India finally rejected all pleas of banning the movie on November 11.The apex court, however, feels it can not intervene in this topic since the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is yet to provide the certification of the movie Padmavati. Both the courts said the Central Board of Film Certification, which is yet to certify the film, will take a call on the film.

The Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said the CBFC has enough guidelines in place already to grant certificates for films.

However, the film's problems do not end here. "We will not allow the film to be screened in Rajasthan at any cost", Singh added.Workers of Karni Sena continued distributing their request letters to cinema exhibitors asking them not to release the film.

"Modalities in this direction will be worked out soon".


"What has to done after that". The Rajasthan government is also planning to set up a committee to watch the movie. "The sad part is that the film is getting free pre-release publicity, and that a commercial and inauthentic venture like this is using my family's name".

The controversy surrounding Padmavati is refusing to die down.

The film has been dragged into a lot of controversies, with some Rajput communities even demanding a ban on its release. Bhansali, however, has said in the past that the film is his tribute to the "sacrifice, valour and honour" of Rani Padmavati.

Various groups, majority from the Rajpur community, have accused Bhansali of "distorting" historical facts in the film which features Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
