Here’s how Kunal Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Diana Penty shared their opinion on Padmavati controversy, watch the video.
Padmavati has been steeped in trouble since shooting began. In January, activists of the Sri Rajput Karni Sena had protested, manhandled and misbehaved with the crew of "Padmavati" claiming that Bhansali was distorting historical facts in the movie.
They had also damaged some cameras and other equipments. Bhansali had to stop shooting.
In March, some miscreants broke the mirrors in Padmini Mahal (palace) in Chittorgarh Fort where Alauddin Khilji is believed to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini.
The Karni Sena claims that mirror was invented years after the incident is claimed to have happened so it is a completely untrue and false story.
On November 3, the Karni Sena had called for a Chittorgarh bandh, which it claimed was a success.Rani Padmini or Padmavati was queen of Chittorgarh. The Sri Rajput Karni Sena with the help of like-minded organisations plans to organise a big rally in Gandhinagar in Gujarat on November 12 against the film.
