Padmaavat, the most awaited movie of Bollywood is surrounded by controversies ever since it has been announced. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the director of the movie has faced a lot of protests against the film by the Rajput Karni Sena. After long time debate and discussion the film is now given a release date. Several modifications suggested by Central Board of Film Certification are done in the movie so as not to harm the honor, valor and vigor of the great Rajput warriors.
Another major modification was done in the most loved song of the movie “Ghoomar”. With millions of views garnered by this song, it shows Deepika (who essays Rani Padmavati in the film) performing the art form. Rajput people felt offended by the song as they said that Rajput women never dance. In roder to avoid more controversies, the song has been edited and Deepika’s midriff has been covered up with a red layer.Bhansali said that this movie is my dream. Being influenced by the Rajput warriors this film is the homage to the glorious stories created by these warriors.
