Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati is turning out to be one of the most controversial films of 2017.

Ajit Andhare, Chief Operating Officer, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, told a news agency, "We are first looking at the censor board (for clearance) and then we don't have a problem (to show the film) because they are imagining something different and we would like to quell all these doubts first".

Mr.Vij also said sati (a practice wherein a widow immolates herself on her husband's funeral pyre) had been completely banned in India and nobody could be allowed to make and release a film promoting it.

Reacting to the ongoing controversy surrounding "Padmavati", Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez, on Monday, said a film is a form of art and everyone has the freedom of speech. He says that let the board take the decision. While some groups are seeking to halt the release of the film, some protestors are demanding to watch it before it hits the screens. Various bodies such as CINTAA, IFTDA, Screenwriters Association, All India Mazdoor Union, and others have chose to observe one-minute silence on Nov 16 to show their solidarity with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Film City, Goregaon. The outfits claim that various historical facts in Padmavati have been distorted and wrongly depicts a romance between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, which director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has denied. He always made heroines look good in his films, and there is no vulgarity in his films.
