It seems the controversies surrounding Padmavati are not ready to end at all. While during the shoot of the film the Karni Sena disrupted the shoot in Rajasthan and attacked director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, now, they’re trying to sabotage the promotional activities.

Recently, an Indian artist named Karan K designed a traditional rangoli of Deepika Padukone’s poster from Padmavati, which took him more than 48 hours to create. However, within hours, the art was destroyed by protestors.

After the whole dilemma, Deepika took to Twitter and slammed the protestors for destroying the artist’s hard work in a series of tweets. She tweeted, “absolutely heartbreaking to see the recent attack on artist Karan and his artwork! Disgusting and appalling to say the least!”

The members of the Jai Rajputana Sangh – an Indian political faction on Saturday met with the management of several cinema halls and multiplexes in Jaipur and warned them against the screening of the film.

“We won’t tolerate any distortion of history and if any romantic relationship is shown between queen Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, we will burn cinema halls screening the film,” said Bhanwar Singh Reta, the founder of the faction.

However, despite all going wrong with the film, Deepika is confident that the film’s release cannot be stopped.

‘’It is extremely overwhelming and extremely tiring as well. We have faced many challenges but still, we stand up with the same spirit and keep on going. Nothing can stop Padmavati,” the actress said.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles and is slated for a release on December 1, 2017.
