Deepika Padukone– Shahid Kapoor– Ranveer Singh starrer Padmavati is facing a new challenge ahead of its release. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the cast are already receiving threats and protests against the film for allegedly ‘distorting the facts’.

CBFC denied viewing the film on the grounds of ‘deficiency in application’.Also Read - Sportsmen And Their Alleged Bollywood Affairs: From Yuvraj-Deepika to Hardik-Parineeti | Watch Video
