Earlier Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's Bajirao Mastani came under fire by angry descendants of Peshwa Bajirao and Mastani and now Shiv Sena has also raised its issues with this film.
Shiv Sena wants a temporary ban on the film. BJP MLA from Pune, Medha Kulkarni has written a letter written to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis asking for a review of the film from the historians.
Medha said "Songs released from this film have clearly distorted the history of Bajirao Peshwa of Pune. This is a crime against Maharashtra's history. This film must undergo the scrutiny of historians before its release and the State government should take the initiative."
Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik has raised objections over lyrics and scenes in the film. Sarnaik had earlier said, "Bajirao Peshwa is an important part of the State's history. His movie appears commercial with no consideration for Marathi culture and the legacy of Peshwa."
UdaySinh, descendant of Bajirao said, "There is a scene where Ranveer Singh is shown pouring water over Priyanka Chopra's head. Those are private moments. How can you show that? We agree with cinematic liberty, but the dignity of the person should be kept intact."
Mastani's descendants have also raised objections against the Bajirao Mastani's popular dialogue - Bajirao ne Mastani se mohabbat ki hai, aiyashi nahi.
Before the release of Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale, such objections may drag the attention of film goers.
