Scheduled for release on 25th January 2018, ‘Padmavat’ has been one of the most anticipated and awaited films in the year 2017. However, it has regularly been embroiled in one or another controversy, and the Karni Sena and former royals of Jaipur have been calling for a complete ban on release of this movie, stating that the director of the film eminent Sanjay Leela Bhansali has shown queen Rani Padmavati in bad light in this film.

This Indian epic period drama film is based on the epic poem Padmavat written in Avadhi language by a famous Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540. This historical film features Deepika Padukone as the legendary Hindu Rajput Queen named Rani Padmavati; Shahid Kapoor as the Rajput ruler of Mewar named Maharawal Ratan Singh, the husband of Rani Padmavati; and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji, the Turko-Afghan ruler of then Delhi Sultanate. According to Padmavat, when in 1303 Khilji had invaded Chittor motivated by his desire to capture Padmavati and its Fort, she had committed Jauhar (self-immolation) along with all other women of the city to protect their honour without being even touched by the soldiers of Khilji, when all men of the army of Ratan Sen died fighting with soldiers of Khilji. Win of Khilji was thus like a painful defeat, though Chittor had been captured with empty fortress.
