Leaving behind all the controversies, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh’s Padmaavat is all set to hit screens on January 25, 2018. The film as earlier set to clash with Akshay Kumar’s Padman but now, due to some wise decisions, will be Bollywood’s solo release. The film is one of the most anticipated ones and advance bookings have already started even while Rajput outfits demand a countrywide ban on the film and threaten of vandalising theatres screening the film.

While all the brouhaha around this work of fiction continues, comedian and screenwriter Varun Grover has put up a video on his YouTube channel, explaining what the real story of the film is all about. Karni Sena has been outraging over how Sanjay Leela Bhansali has distorted history, shown their Goddess Queen Rani Padmini is a bad light and character assassinated her by showing a love angle between him and Turk King and Delhi Sultanate ruler Alauddin Khilji. But in an 8 minute video, the comedian talks about the real crux of the story of Padmavat – the 1540 poem that Padmaavat is based on and how there is very little nothing to outrage about.

We are sure, if members of Karni Sena were to see this video, they would really be embarrassed for their actions and statements so far. The comedian also touches upon the bounties on Bhansali’s head and Deepika’s nose; reports about Shahid Kapoor being upset for not enough footage in the trailer; and how utterly foolish it has been to have the film’s name go from Padmavati to Padmaavat so that Rajputi history, aan, baan and shaan remains intact.

It also has around 600 comments which are mostly positive, many from people belonging to the Rajput community who not only know how to take the joke but also are avid cine buffs, waiting to watch the magnum opus unfold on the big screen this Thursday.
