Since the launch of Ram Leela's official trailer, there have been various controversies and complaints against the movie. This movie which is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This may leave you wondering as to why are Indians pretesting against this film!

Ram Leela which stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone as Ram and Leela respectively is in trouble because it allegedly hurts religious sentiments and is said to cause enmity.
