Featuring Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, the song encapsulates the romance shared between the two characters, Rani Padmavati and Maharawal Ratan Singh.

Of late, there have been protests against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati, in Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra, and objections have been raised about Rajputs being shown in a bad light.

The film is based on Rani Padmini, a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi language epic poem, written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540.

Citing the example of Ashutosh Gowariker's "Jodha Akbar", Akhtar said as per the history Akbar never had a wife by the name of Jodha Bai and people should not confuse a work of fiction with history.

Three US supercarriers to conduct joint drills in waters off Korean peninsula
The U.S. 7th Fleet announced the tri-carrier exercise on Wednesday, but without mentioning participation by other nations. It's the first time in a decade that three US aircraft carriers have converged in the western Pacific.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati team had also witnessed violent attacks few months back by locals who were offended by film's script. However, Kapoor does as good a job, if not better, at playing the mesmerised lover, which comes through in this song.

"It's unfortunate to see the personal point of view expressed by an advisory panel member of CBFC against Sanjay Leela Bhansali". The movie is all set to hit the theatres on December 1. "So I feel we need to look into it if there is any worldwide conspiracy behind it.", Swamy told ANI when asked about the Padmavati controversy. Bhansali was assaulted by activists of a Rajput community group, Karni Sena, while shooting in Jaipur. "The queens never used to do ghoomar and the thumkas (hip movement) themselves and the revelation of skin by actress Deepika Padukone, in her portrayal of Padmavati, has hurt the sentiments of the Rajput community".

Those opposing the film first alleged that there was a dream sequence involving Padmavati and Allauddin Khilji.
