A petition has been filed in Pune court seeking a ban on the film ‘Bajirao Mastani’, alleging that the historical facts relating to late King Shrimant Bajirao Peshwe and his family members had been wrongly portrayed in the film.

The petition strongly objects to Deepika and Priyanka’s dance number ‘Pinga‘.  According to the petitioner the song incorrectly portrays the characters of Kashibai and Mastani, and ‘distorts’ history.

“The film is an insult to the glorious history of Bajirao Peshwa and a total misrepresentation of his person,” claimed the petition.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have been named as respondents.

Bajirao Mastani is set to release on December 18, 2015.
