Padmaavat's release was delayed after several Rajput groups alleged that the film has distorted historical facts and also shows a romantic sequence between Rani Padmavati (Deepika) and Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer).
Ever since the film's production went on floors, it was embroiled in controversies including the infamous vandalism on the sets of Padmaavat and physical assault on director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Padmaavat stars Deepika as Rani Padmini of Chittor, who committed jauhar after Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer, invaded her fort. Shahid stars as Rawal Ratan Singh, Deepika's husband.
