Mumbai: No wonder why Sanjay Leela Bhansali is called a master craftsman. The ace filmmaker, who is best known for creating a spectacle on screen, must be a very satisfied man now. His latest – Padmaavat – which has been in trouble since its inception, has finally released. And with big names – Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji- on board, Padmaavat may set the Box Office on fire despite threats and disruptions.

A special screening of the film was held on Tuesday and a number of people from film fraternity had attended it. Here’s taking a look at some of the reactions:

The film has been in news for all wrong reasons ever since it went on floors. Inspired by 16th century Awadhi peom - Padmavat - penned by Sufi poet Malik Muhammed Jayasi, Padmaavat is one of Bhansali's most ambitious projects.

Also featuring Aditi Rao Hydari as Mehr-un-nisa (wife of Alauddin Khilji), Raza Murad as Jalaluddin Khilji (uncle of Alauddin), Jim Sarbh as Malik Kafur ( close aide of Alauddin) and Anupriya Goenka as Rani Nagmati (first wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh), Padmaavat has witnessed massive protests by various Rajput groups across the country.

The Supreme Court had paved the way for the nationwide release of Padmaavat after some states had issued notifications banning the film. But the Rajput Karni Sena is hell bent on disrupting the film's release by resorting to violence.
