Maharajkumar Vishvaraj Singh, son of Mahendra Singh Mewar - the 76th Maharana of the Mewar dynasty and a former Lok Sabha member - had earlier written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Smriti Irani, and Censor Board Chairperson Prasoon Joshi, among others, requesting them to withhold the certification and release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.

Now Singh, in an interview to India Today, has suggested that the Deepika Padukone-Shahid Kapoor-Ranveer Singh-starrer is very likely to contain “inaccuracies”.

Judging by what has already been released, we can very reasonably expect that there will some inaccuracies even in (the) rest of the film.

In his interview with India Today, Vishvaraj Singh said no sources other than the poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi had been mentioned so far in context of the film. According to him, Jayasi "had the humility to accept that he is a poet, not a historian”, hence, not a “reliable” source.
