From the very beginning, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus was targeted.

On the onset of the shoot, Bhansali was attacked by the members of Rajput community group, Karni Sena, during the film shooting in Rajasthan.

Later, the members of the Karni Sena burnt posters of the first look of the film that featured  Padmavati (Deepika), Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) and Allaudin Khilji (Ranveer Singh).

They also threatened to create ruckus during the film release if facts were distorted.

 ‘Padmavati’ is slated to release on December 1.
