Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama film Padmavati is in the news thanks to several controversies prior its release on December 1. "We are screening the film to CBFC as per established procedure and convention followed in the industry". Supreme Court said that the Censor Board has not yet issued certificate to Padmavati, it is an independent body and therefore the court should not intervene in their jurisdiction. "He needs to be severely punished by being tried for treason for his attempt to distort history so that in future any filmmaker is wary of this kind of projects", Arun Gupta, a member of BJP and CBFC wrote in a letter. Like every magnum opus presented by Bhansali, Padmavati's every frame exudes opulence, colour- synchronisation and grandeur. Recently, Sanjay Leela Bhansali addressed the controversy by saying that there is no dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji in the film and they have made this movie with a responsibility and kept the honour to Rajputs. "The sad part is that the film is getting free pre-release publicity, and that a commercial and inauthentic venture like this is using my family's name".

"We have already clarified that all anxieties about the alleged depiction are unfounded. It's a film Rajasthan will be proud to watch once it gets smooth release". The argument was that this committee can determine whether the film contained any scenes that lowered the dignity of Rani/Sati Padmavati.

CBFC chairperson Parsoon Joshi said that an individual point of view does not change the collective view of an organization. To add fuel to the fire, Shahid Kapoor, who is playing Rawal Ratan Singh in the film, is reportedly upset with the makers for highlighting and giving more preference to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
