"Padmavati" has been embroiled in controversy over threats from the Rajput Karni Sena, as well as hold ups with incomplete paperwork submitted to the Indian film censor board, CBFC.

The Supreme Court on Thursday told that he will hear the petition of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, directed by "Padmavati" to stop releasing outside the country on November 28. Moreover, the insurance cover comes into effect only after the film's theatrical release. "Stating, '"Padmavati" (12 A) moderate violence, injury detail", the British Censor Board has listed the film on its official site. The court will hear the case on Tuesday.

Previously, Haryana BJP's Chief Media Coordinator, Suraj Pal Amu was offering a reward of INR 10 crore for beheading the film's lead actor Deepika Padukone and director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Even as the film faces protests in India, forcing postponement of its release here, the British Board for Film Certification has cleared Padmavati for release in the United Kingdom. Eventually, the makers had to shift their release date and reports have it that the film might release early next year. The makers of Padmavati recently chose to postpone its release in India following violent protests against the film. However, the court has not directly sent the complaint about the registration but they asked the recording of the statement of the complainant.

Padmavati is based on the legend that Alauddin Khijli (played by Ranveer Singh) invades Chittor to capture the already-married Queen Padmini, (played by Deepika Padukone).
