Will it be another Baahubali?
Looking at the trailer, people would not help but remember SS Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali series. The movie, which is considered a landmark film in India, was similar in nature. It had grand visuals backed by well-choreographed war sequences.

Padmaavat Controversy
The movie, which was supposed to be released in December 2017, has ran into trouble after Shri Rajput Karni Sena threatened to vandalise the theatres screening the movie. According to the group, the  movie projects Rajput queen Padmavati in a bad night and alleged distortion of historical facts.

In fact, the film has now been banned in BJP-ruled states Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.
