Since, the 'Pinga' song of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani has released, the film has landed in a series of controversies. Not so long ago, a descendant of the Peshwas, Mohini Karkarey had written an open letter to Mr Bhansali, where she had bashed the director for projecting the false things.
Now, the film has again landed into some major troubles. A Shiv Sena MLA has asked the Maharashtra government to stop the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film Bajirao Mastani.
MLA Pratap Sarnaik Asks Not To Release The Film
The MLA from Thane district, Pratap Sarnaik, in a memorandum submitted to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, has urged him not to allow the release of the film till the contentious, controversial scenes in the film are not cut.
"The film be first shown to the legislators and then only the permission be granted for its release," Sarnaik said.
The Sena legislator has alleged that lead actors in the film Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have extracted a heavy price for acting in the film. Sarnaik argued that the Bollywood flick is not only being released in Maharashtra and all over India, but also in foreign countries.
"Hence those who are not aware of the deeds of Bajirao Peshwa, Maratha history and Marathi culture will be mislead into harbouring perverted notion. This will cause pain to the Maharashtrian community," he said.
Controversy Related To 'Pinga' Song, Again!
"The 'Pinga' song picturised on queen Kashibai and Mastani and the 'Vaat Lavli' song in which Bajirao Peshwa (I) dances in 'vulgar' fashion holding his pony tail is not acceptable to the heart and mind of Marathi legislators like me," Sarnaik said.
The Sena leader demanded that until and unless no proper guidance and directions are received from the heirs of Bajirao Peshwa (I) and the historians, and the scenes causing pain to the Maharashtrian people, are not deleted, the permission for the release of the film should not be granted.

The brand new poster of Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer Bajirao Mastani. In this poster the duo can be seen in their warrior avatar. We got to say that we can't wait enough to watch the film.
We wonder, what actor Ranveer Singh has to say on the latest controversy surrounding Bajirao Mastani. He will be seen portraying the character of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao in the film.
Along with Ranveer, actress Deepika Padukone will also be seen in her never-seen-before avatar. She will portray the character of 'Mastani' in this Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick.
All the trouble related to Bajirao Mastani started, when the 'Pinga' song of the film was released and a descendant of the Peshwas bashed the director for portraying the facts incorrectly.
Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer Bajirao Mastani also casts Priyanka Chopra in the lead role. Priyanka will be seen portraying the character of Bajirao's first wife, Kashibai.
Deepika As Mastani
Out of all, Deepika Padukone is looking very promising in her character and we are really looking forward for the film, especially to see Deepika as 'Mastani'.
