A mall in Kota was vandalised by members of Karni Sena, just because the theatre there was playing the trailer of the film.
Deepika says that she is really proud that she is a part of the movie and she is telling the story to the people which need to be told.
Karni Sena who were against the release of the film have trespassed into a theater of Kota, a city of Rajasthan and broke the glasses plus the valuables at the ticket counter as well as the interior of the theater. Simply because the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which has ostensibly cleared the film, is a statutory body that falls under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India.
In March as well, some miscreants broke the mirrors in Padmini Mahal (palace) in Chittorgarh Fort where Alauddin Khilji is believed to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini. "There's a lot of hard work goes when you make a film, the director has the right to present his perception and creativity, there should be freedom of speech and creativity", he said. What have we gotten ourselves into? She says that her journey has been a pretty incredible.
This is the third time when the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone are collaborating together. "Nation can progress only when it is regression from her perspective", Swamy tweeted.
However, amidst all the controversies and threats against the release of Padmavati, many Bollywood celebrities have shown their support towards Padmavati, including Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez.
