Padmaavat makers unveil full jukebox of Deepika Padukone-starrer; Experience it here (Screen Grab)
'Padmaavat' makers have released the full jukebox of Deepika Padukone-starrer, just a week before its release. The playlist, consisting of six songs - 'Ghoomar', 'Ek Dil Ek Jaan', 'Khalibali', 'Nainovaale Ne', 'Holi' and 'Binte Dil', is already doing rounds on social networking sites.
While 'Ghoomar' and 'Ek Dil Ek Jaan' were earlier released in December, the rests are the new edition to the album. 'Khalibali' and Binte Dil' seem to feature Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, while 'Holi' is an intense folk number which already touched hearts of many.
On the other hand, 'Nainovale Ne' might be an ode to Shahid Kapoor's Maharawal Ratan Singh from Deepika Padukone's Rani Padmavati.
Based on the 16th-century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s epic poem 'Padmavat', the movie faced resistance due to misinformation campaigns and rumour-mongering.
Several Rajput groups like Karni Sena accused the filmmakers of distorting historical facts, maligning the image of Rani Padmini. A rumoured dream sequence between Padmini and Khilji has sparked several debates ever since the movie began shooting in Rajasthan.
Queen Padmavati is the symbol of woman courage, resistance, sacrifice and considered to be the Goddess of Rajput. Hence, Karni Sena left no stone unturned to prevent makers from maligning her image and tried to impose a complete ban on the period drama across India.
Following these massive protests all over the country, four states, including Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana, banned the film from release even after it received a U/A certificate from the CBFC.
The filmmakers further moved the Supreme Court against the states' decision, which ruled that the ban on the film was illegal and it was the states' responsibility to maintain law and order upon the film's release.
Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh-Shahid Kapoor-starrer is slated for a nationwide release on January 25, 2018.
