Meanwhile, designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula, who worked on Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid's costumes for Padmavati said, "We immersed ourselves in the history of that particular period during the initial sessions in which he took us through the script and the characterisations. It is an extremely challenging task to envision and design garments."
Meanwhile, a rangoli of Deepika's Padmavati poster, made by an artist in Gujarat's Surat, was vandalised by a group of protesters. Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an outfit of the Rajput community, has also opposed the release of Padmavati until Mr Bhansali shows the film to them.
