Questions have been going around on social media for quite some time now. That did Alauddin Khilji really saw queen Padmavati? People have been asking strange questions and making strange conclusions based on half knowledge. You might be wondering the same thing. Let me answer this question for you!
Controversy of Queen Padmavati’s Glance
Everyone is familiar with the upcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie Padmavati. But It has been facing a lot of negative responses from Karni Sena, Rajput community and, some BJP members. This controversy is grounded on the fact that Bhansali’s has twisted the facts and didn’t portray the history just as it is.
The truth in the pages of history
The Archeological Survey of India said that Mahrawal Ratan Singh had shown a glimpse of his wife Padmavati to Alauddin Khilji through a mirror. Hence confirming the situation. Seeing her flawless beauty, he was so shaken that he couldn’t resist but attack Chittaur in order to possess her. Such was her beauty.
Shri Rajput Karni Sena protested that in 1303 there were no mirrors. There is another reason behind such ongoing controversies. Apparently, there was an unconfirmed news that there is a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and queen Padmavati. But recently, Bhansali confirmed that there is no such thing in the movie. These controversies had taken a bad turn and people have begun to protest and attach cinema halls in Kota. This reaction was in response to the screening of a teaser of Padmavati.
This movie maybe is experiencing a lot of controversies and negative responses from that media and general audience, but we hope that this movie turns out to be a success. The movie is a work of excellent artists- Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh. We wish it all the luck.
