'Padmaavat' released in the country amid much hullaballoo. The film faced massive protests from fringe groups across the nation, demanding a pan India ban on the period drama. After braving all odds, Padmaavat hit the screens and managed to have preview shows days ahead of the nationwide release at some places.
Not only is the film doing incredible business in the country, but also internationally Padmaavat has got a big thumbs up from the audience.
The film faced protests by fringe groups claiming that the filmmaker has distorted historical facts in the film. However, Bhansali time and again mentioned that none of these claims is true.
