Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama Padmavati has been in controversies ever since its announcement. "So, after Deepika's look, in the coming two-three days, the official looks of Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh from the film will also be unveiled", DNA quoted a source as saying. Karni Sena leaders said that the movie will not be allowed to screen anywhere in India and the producers should respect the terms of the agreement. "In January he had promised us that movie screening would be organized for Rajput prior to its release so that if there is anything that needs to be removed could be done".

On Saturday, members of the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an organisation of the Rajput community, burnt posters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie "Padmavati".

The Karni Sena leaders alleged that film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is backtracking from his promise and his movie may not be allowed to release. In a fresh threat, Narain Singh Divrala said, "We have come to know through media reports that facts and history have been distorted in the film, and it is unacceptable".

"We want him to show the film to the core committee of Shri Rajput Karni Sena and various organisations, including historians, before releasing it", Divrala said. "Deepika's look has been launched then Shahid's (Shahid Kapoor plays Deepika's onscreen husband) and my look will also be out and after that trailer of the film will get release", Ranveer told IANS. "They are trying to defame Padmavati by distorting historical facts".

Earlier this month, Ranveer Singh walked out of the airport sporting clean shaven look and the guesswork began on why Ranveer opted for this jaw-dropping transformation. And he says that this is because he is shooting for the younger version of Alauddin Khilji in "Padmavati". He told IANS, "There are lots of expectations with "Padmavati"..." I am very excited about the film.
