Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, the film is based on 16th century poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's poem "Padmavat". It was caught in a row after protests from Shri Rajput Karni Sena which contended that it distorts historical facts and dents the pride of the Rajput community.

It has received mixed reviews, with some appreciating the movie for its visual brilliance and impeccable performances, while some slamming it for glorifying the practice of Jauhar (self-immolation) and for showcasing Alauddin Khilji as demon-like.
