The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices DY Chandrachud and AM Khanwilkar. The Jaipur Royals said that Bhansali productions had promised during shooting to show film to them and Rajput Sabha Bhawan before releasing film's trailer and songs which they have not done. "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".

The petitioner Kamta Prasad Singhal had pleaded that under the Sati (Prevention) Act, the practice was banned and even its propagation was banned and made punishable.
