Meanwhile, Padmavati has been facing one controversy after another ever since it went on floors. The sets were attacked in Jaipur and Kolhapur by Karni Sena activists. Sanjay Leela Bhansali was physically manhandled. While his team tried to protect SLB, a blow landed straight on the cowering, unarmed, filmmaker. A lot of Bollywood celebs condemned the attack and the incident became a major issue at that time. Celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar took to social media to express their anger. Bhansali had even issued an official statement condemning the attack and said it was uncalled for.
Padmavati is set to hit theatres on December 1.
