In between all the turmoil regarding Padmavati, another major development took place as allegedly death threat came from Pakistan warning Padmavati protesters.

The earlier film was going to release on 1st of December. Next date is still not decided.
Conflict And Drama Behind Movie
The main reason behind the conflict is that Karni Sena and other Rajput organization found the film projecting the distorted version of history. They took a strong objection against the wrong depiction of Padmavati’ and Khilji’s love scenes as according to sources there was no such incident exist in history.
Wrong Depiction Of Padmavati

The Rajput community expressed their anger and Kept Chittorgarh fort closed for one day. Bullets were fired and even some said that if necessary than tanks will also come out. In Jaipur, Brahman, community protested against the film and demanded a blanket ban on the film. Blood signed campaigned also ran by Brahmans against the release of the film.
In several other places, people expressed their anger. The whole controversy started in January when some people belongs to Karani Sena slapped Bhansali and misbehaved while he was shooting Padmavati in Rajasthan.

Reactions over the Film And Protests
Various reactions from different fraternity are coming over the Padmavati. Deepika slammed protesters and said that there is nothing wrong in film and she is eagerly waiting for release. Politicians, on the other hand, have a different set of opinion. One of the senior most leaders of B.J.P. Uma Bharti Refused to comment on actors worked in the film. She further added that its the responsibility of Filmmaker and writer.
Rajnath Singh told that its the matter of public sentiment and people who are protesting have logical facts which can not be denied. Rajnath even said that his party is not playing any politics over the row.
Shashi Tharur fueled the fire further by making an objectionable remark against Rajputs he said: “where were the pride of Rajputs when they surrendered against British rule”. Smriti Irani immediately slammed Shashi Tharur and asked Tharur to first ask this question to Congress Mp’s who comes from Rajput family
Karani Sena chief, Lokendra Singh warned by stating that this is the fire of pride and in or any case they won’t let movie release in India.
India is a sensitive country and people are deeply attached to their cultural identity. Padmavati, especially among the Rajput community, have a great respect and people worship her as a mother with great pride. Padmavati represents the honor of Rajputs and even many other Hindu communities.
Another thing which is controversial is some historians claim that Padmavati is a fictional character and they refused to accept that any of the historical accounts exist other than the “Padmavati”, a Poetic epic written by Malik Mohammad Jayasi.
