- Padmavati will hit the screens on December 1
- Deepika Padukone says that Padmavati was an 'incredible' journey
- The film also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh
Padmavati tells the story of Queen Padmini of Chittor in Rajasthan and also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The film has run into controversy with some Hindu groups, mainly in Rajasthan, stating that it romanticises the relationship between Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, the Delhi ruler who was obsessed with her.
Last week, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali released a video and clarified that there are no romantic sequences in the film between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmini, but the protests continue to grow.
Of this, Deepika told IANS: "I will not say anything."
So far, the makers of the film have released two songs - Ghoomarand Ek Dil Ek Jaan from the film. In no time, the songs went crazy viral on the Internet.
Of Ghoomar, Deepika said: "We are very happy that everyone appreciated the song so much and this is one of my favourite songs. I am very happy that everyone liked the song. I think we are equally excited about the release of the film and it is going to be special."
Padmavati is all set to hit the theatres on December 1.
