Padmavati protests intensify in Rajasthan, outfits threaten strike

Members of the Rajput Karni Sena vandalized a theatre in Aakash Mall in Kota, Rajasthan for showing the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati.

The controversy surrounding Padmavati spilled into the streets as several outfits staged protests against the film and even threatened to burn down theatres that screen the movie. "There's a lot of hard work goes when you make a film, the director has the right to present his perception and creativity, there should be freedom of speech and creativity", he said. The Rajput Karni Sena is claiming that Padmavati insults the Rajput community and is a distortion of history, which "hurts their religious sentiments".

"The trailer of the film shows Rani Padmavati doing a Ghoomar dance". Meanwhile, Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore said that she believes the prospects of the film industry will suffer when films such as Padmavati face controversies. They are also heard using profanities against the makers of the movie. She says that her journey has been a pretty incredible. What have we gotten ourselves into?

Taylor Swift's Reputation Is Already 2017's Top-Selling Album
Now, the album is tracking to be No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart December 2, with critics now generally praising the album itself.

Despite Sanjay Leela Bhansali's repeated assurances that the film does not romanticise Padmini and Khilji, motley groups have demanded that they be allowed to watch Padmavati before it releases.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy lashed out at Deepika Padukone for her "regression" comments. "Nation can progress only when it is regression from her perspective", Swamy tweeted. Deepika is convinced the movie will release, as scheduled, on December 1.

"They are very independent individuals and very strong characters", Deepika said, her voice exuding pride that in Padmavati, while there are two men - Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh - she essays the title role, which "does not happen often in a woman's career". Earlier Deepika Padukone has been into the film set before and she does not know how to deliver the dialogues to today enjoying the craft so much where she is the most peaceful and the happiest when she is in the front of the camera.
