Bollywood industry’s filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus PAdmavati starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh will not release on 1st December 2017. Accordingly Padmavati has been facing the wrath of the Karni Sena ever since it’s filming days. As the release date of the film came closer, the death threats started and then the CBFC has some issues.

Along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, amongst the most gifted film makers of his generation, Viacom18 Motion Pictures has created a beautiful cinematic masterpiece in ‘Padmavati’ that captures Rajput valor, dignity and tradition in all its glory.
