Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati is facing trouble after trouble. With less than a month for the release of the movie, massive protests have broken in major cities like Mumbai and Surat against actors Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

While over one lakh members of the community had met at a massive gathering at Gandhinagar, thousands took part in the protest march in Surat to raise their demand of staying the release of Padmavati. Similar protests were carried in the Mumbai as well and around 15 members of the Akhand Rajputana Seva Sangh were detained by the police in the city during the protest. This was not the first time police got involved, as some months back a huge rangoli of Deepika Padukone as Padmavati and police had arrested 5 people in the case.

According to Mansinh Rathod who is leading the Gujarat of Karni Sena, "Karni Sena', Bhansali has "distorted the historical facts in the movie. We have learnt that there is a dream sequence in the movie wherein ‘Rani Padmavati' has been shown romancing with 'Allaudin Khilji'. We condemn such a heinous portrayal our queen. ‘Karni Sena' will never allow such movie to hit the theaters." He further added, "To raise our demand, Karni Sena and other Rajput and Hindu organisations called a gathering in Gandhinagar. We had also organised a protest march in Surat. It is our clear warning that if this movie gets released on December 1, there will be violent protests and government will be responsible for the law and order situation."

These protests were fueled because of a rumored dream sequence between Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the movie. So do you think the protests are right? Share your thoughts below.
