The row surrounding Padmaavat, starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles, began in January 2017 when some members of Rajput outfit Shri Rajput Karni Sena vandalised the film’s set and even slapped Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The Delhi High Court today rejected a plea seeking penal action against the producers and the director of Padmaavat for alleged glorification of the practice of sati. Sati is an obsolete funeral custom where a widow immolates herself on her husband’s pyre and the law prohibits it.
In Tiger Zinda Hai, Anupriya played the role of nurse Poorna and in Padmaavat, she essayed Nagmati, the first wife of Shahid Kapoor’s Maharawal Ratan Singh.

As Ranveer Singh dives into the role of a rapper for Gully Boy, he talks about finding joy in the prep, and playing Alauddin Khilji.
Ahead of Valentine’s Day, fans of Deepika Padukone are showering love on the Padmaavat actor. Marking the occasion of Promise Day on February 11, fans of the actress pledged to watch the first day first show of all her films.
Ranveer Singh, who was highly praised by audiences and critics for portraying the character of Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat, says that the movie will always be a gem in his filmography. He is now busy shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy with Alia Bhatt.
Deepika Padukone turned cover girl and recently shared a few clicks from the photoshoot. Deepika is all happy and excited in these clicks.
Khalji is the valiant hero in the chronicles written by the poet Amir Khusrao, the ruthless oppressor in the Rajput annals and the villainous descendant of Muslim invaders in nationalist historiography of independent India.
After Alauddin Khilji’s dance song Khalibali, it is the love ballad Binte Dil which makes us applaud the music weaving skills of the Padmaavat director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Deepika Padukone’s prediction of Padmaavat having “earth-shattering box office performance” is turning out to be true. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus has managed to create records at the box office not only in India but also in the international markets.
Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, ‘Padmaavat’ has been embroiled in controversies for a long time. Bringing forth a fresh change, American-Indian dancers enthralled the audience with their performance on ‘Ghoomar’ during an NBA match.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali admitted that he found it mentally difficult to cope with the negativities surrounding Padmaavat but he did not let it reflect on the screen. The director also said that the protests were illogical and obnoxious.
While Ranveer Singh has captivated a lot many from the film industry with his eccentric performance as Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat, the one accolade that stood out for him was from Bollywood’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat was more gorgeous than ever but with an insipid narrative and relentless exaltation of the Rajputana, the Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh starrer ends up being a tiring affair.
