"Padmavati" has been facing a lot of problems since its inception. The movie is scheduled to release on December 1.According to Mansinh Rathod, who is leading the Gujarat chapter of "Karni Sena", Bhansali has "distorted the historical facts in the movie."We have learnt that there is a dream sequence in the movie wherein "Rani Padmavati" has been shown romancing with "Allaudin Khilji".

A Rajput outfit on Monday warned that it would not allow upcoming Hindi film "Padmavati" to be screened in Karnataka, claiming that the film distorted historical facts and portrayed royal characters of yore in a poor light.

Meanwhile, the latest song from the film, Ek Dil Ek Jaan featuring Shahid Kapoor has already clocked 6 million views on YouTube.

Members of the Rajput Karni Sena had previously vandalised the film's sets and assaulted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Jaipur.
