A big controversy has cropped around Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Padmavati Controversy; period drama PADMAVATI, starring actress Deepika Padukone, actors Shahid Kapoor and Ranvir Singh. A period drama based on the life of 13th-century queen, Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh.It has been in the eye of the storm for distorting historical facts and hurting religious sentiments of the people.The slated release of the movie in 2018 is going to be marked with a nationwide protest bandh by the Karni Sena.It has created a hullabaloo and Deepika Padukone who portrays the role of the rani is under threat of physical harm.The film wrongly implies a romantic relationship between the queen and Alauddin Khilji.Rajputs feel their pride has been hurt as the filmmaker portraying the queen in a wrong way.
But as it is seen it is based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s poem “PADMAVATI” in 1540. It is debatable was there a queen Padmini? There seem to be loopholes in Jayasi’s Story, as Alauddin had killed Rana of Chittor in 1303. And he died in 1316 during this period no one by the name of Padmavat or Padmini existed. Historians feel that Bhansali has not portrayed Alauddin in an accurate manner. Historians are unable to believe a shrewd and strategic ruler like Alauddin. He could lose his head and pledge war over the queen. Whose beauty they say was unparalleled and such records do not exist in that time period. Though there are a lot of mutations in Jayasi’s work and to retain Rajput honor padmavati committed Jauhar. Instead of going into the hands of a lecherous man.
So creating a controversy on myths will lead to nowhere; One should follow facts to voice an opinion, an uproar on no proper grounds to create a sensation leads to nowhere.
