Deepika Padukone offered prayers at the Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai on Tuesday. Clad in traditional attire, the 32-year-old visited the temple merely two days ahead of the release of her controversial film 'Padmaavat'.
Starring Deepika, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles, the flick has run into trouble time and again, as members of several Rajput factions have accused director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of distorting history. The film was originally slated for release on December 1 last year.
Earlier on Tuesday, Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the plea of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh governments seeking to ban Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’. The top court has ordered the states to abide by its earlier order.
While dismissing the plea Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra said that “states must comply with the Supreme Court order.”
