This is one movie that has seen a huge share of controversy and it’s not even released yet. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ first met with protests from the Rajput Karni Sena, after which its release was postponed.

The controversies around the film kept on and finally it was passed by CBFC with five modifications. The filmmakers also changed its name from the erstwhile ‘Padmavati’ to ‘Padmaavat’. It is set to release on January 25, 2018 and the poster of the film is also finally out.

The magnum opus stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh. Ranveer will be playing the role of Alauddin Khilji and Shahid will essay the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh. And Deepika of course, plays Padmini – the Rajput queen. As per the buzz, a few days prior to the release of the film, Sanjay’s mother Leela Bhansali became emotional after watching ‘Padmaavat’. A source told a site, “Sanjay sir has shown Padmaavat to his mother Leela and after watching the film, she got very emotional as she feels the movie is his best work. Sanjay sir’s mother is very happy and proud of his work in Padmavat. She can’t believe that even after all that her son and the film has gone through, it has turned out to be such a great tribute to the Rajput women and a beautiful film to watch.”
