Speaking to ANI, Kataria said "In a democracy everyone has right to protest".

On the other hand, a large number of Rajput women in traditional dress also protested and many of them tore off posters of the film.

"I want to say that you have Censor Board, they will take a decision. I have been told that eight people have been arrested".

As per a report on Mid Day, members of Rajput Karni Sena vandalised a cinema hall in Kota, Rajasthan, as the theatre was screening the film's trailer. They are also heard using profanities against the makers of the movie.

"Padmavati" is set on release on December 1, 2017 and stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in titular roles.

Deepika says that she is really proud that she is a part of the movie and she is telling the story to the people which need to be told.


Meanwhile, senior VHP leader Acharya Dharmendra said a case should be lodged against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali over "Padmavati" and senior Congress leader Rameshwar Dudi demanded a ban on the controversial film.

Interestingly, November has marked not just Deepika's 10 years in the film industry - her debut film Om Shanti Om was released on November 9 - but also November 15 is when Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela hit the screens four years ago. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation?

Deepika's comments did not go down well with BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. Swami lashed out on Twitter and wrote, " Deepika Padukone giving us lecture on regression!

"It has been an incredible journey and we are literally counting the days". "Maharani Padmini is the revered mother of 125 crore Hindus in the world and her character assassination by a film is disrespect to the Hindu religion, its culture and glorious history", he said.

Even as the release date for the film comes closer, the state government has no plan of action to contain the tension.
