The former royals of Jaipur have joined the opposition to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film, Padmavati, which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh and is scheduled to release on December 1. Divya Kumari, whose grandfather was the last ruler of Jaipur, said "The women of Rajasthan are very upset with this film made on a queen who is the epitome of sacrifice." Ms Kumari is a BJP law-maker in Rajasthan. The controversy around "Padmavati" is based on its depiction of the interaction between Rajput queen Padmini and Delhi ruler Alauddin Khilji, who was infatuated with her. The legend is that she set herself on fire to prevent him from capturing her. Mr Bhansali has rubbished all reports of a romantic sequence between Padmavati and Khilji in the film.
