Despite changing the title to Padmavat, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus based on Rani Padmini is still facing a backlash from Rajput Karni Sena!


The Karni Sena are claiming that by changing the title of the film and making mere modifications in the disclaimer they can't fool our sentiments and can't justify the defamation of our goddess queen of Chittor.


The chief of Karni Sena, Lokendra Singh Kalvi quoted, "The film brings disgrace to Rani Padmini and it is an attack on Rajput pride. The film presents distorted facts and threatens to shake India's cultural identity. We ask the government and CBFC, why they are silently witnessing this defamation of India's pride? Why do they feel the compulsion to release a film that hurts the sentiments of people? The compromise made between the censor board and makers of Padmavati cannot be accepted. We warn that theaters releasing the film would have to face detrimental consequences?"


The sena also claimed that the movie was not reviewed by historians. "The CBFC is misleading us by saying that a team of historians reviewed the film while the truth is that not all of the panelists were historians and hence their suggestions cannot be comprehended." The magnum opus which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor saw a nationwide ban due to the protests and riots carried by the people of Karni Sena.
