"Padmaavat" is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and it also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The film is based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi's ballad of the same name, which narrates the story of Rani Padmini of Chittor, who performed jauhar after Alauddin Khilji breeched the fort of Chittor.
Director Bhansali and his team faced several hurdles during the film's making and also before its release. Rajput Karni Sena and many other fringe outfits opposed to the film's release citing historical inaccuracies. Several death threats were issued against Mr Bhansali and Deepika. "Padmaavat" was initially meant to release in December 2017 but the release was postponed to January 25.
