Padmavati is an epic period drama directed by Bhansali, starring Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer singh, and based on the legend of Rani Padmavati, a Hindu Rajput queen. The sets of the film were vandalised on a couple of occasions and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the director of the film, was assaulted by a member of a Rajput organisation who believed that the filmmaker was distorting history by misrepresenting facts.

The conjecture is that the makers have showcased a romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and invader Alauddin Khilji - a claim put to rest by Bhansali as incorrect. "We trust the CBFC's judgement", he said, as they await a CBFC screening of the film. "Karni Sena" will never allow such a movie to hit the theatres", a spokesperson said.

Senior Karni Sena leaders, including founder Lokendrasinh Kalvi and national president Mahipalsinh Makrana, joined Gandhinagar protest.

With the Gujarat assembly poll in December, protesters also warned the ruling BJP of "consequences".

That only cost the 49ers a timeout, however, as the Giants' series ended with a failed field-goal attempt from 34 yards. The 49ers are set with Jimmy Garoppolo , who reportedly won't start for San Francisco until Week 12 against Seattle.

It is pertinent to note here that Deep-Veer's upcoming movie "Padmavati" is facing controversy after controversy since its announcement.

A group of around 25 people protested outside Bhansali's office in suburban Juhu. Another meeting was to discuss the Supreme Court order that refused to impose any restrictions on the release of the movie, stating that it was yet to be reviewed by the censor board of film certification. "Were the Rajputs not this concerned?" he asked, adding, "These protests must stop". "If the film gets censor certificate, it must be right-minded", he said.

But, Union minister Naqvi had a different view.

"What you like in a film, should be accepted and what you do not like, should be left there".
