Those opposing Padmavati should see the film: Union Minister

  • Members of the Akhil Bhartiya Chatriya Mahasabha dismantle a poster of the movie ‘Padmavati’ in protest in Ranchi

Anil Jain, a local BJP spokesperson, told ANI that the law applies to everyone in the state of Haryana and no one can threaten others. The ban on the film, based on the life of queen Padmavati of Chittor, Rajasthan, has been announced in the two states following massive protests against its screening in several parts of the country. Mr. Singh has written to Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, requesting him to impose a ban on the film. The Hindu and Rajput groups are mainly protesting against Padmavati. Voting will be held in Gujarat on December 9 and 14. The counting of votes will take place on December 18, as declared by the Election Commission of India (ECI) earlier.

Responding to the controversy, Kapoor had said, "I don't think there is anything in the film that is unacceptable or not in good taste".

"Padmavati" has been facing the wrath of various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have accused Bhansali of distorting history. Facing massive opposition at home, Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie Padmavati was cleared uncut by the British censors even as the Supreme Court agreed on Thursday to hear a plea seeking directions that the film is not released overseas on December 1. SC had earlier dismissed petitions seeking ban on the film, making it clear that it wants the censor board to come to an independent and considered decision on certifying the movie.

Ahead of 26/11 anniversary: Pak court orders release of Hafiz Saeed
Speaking to PTI, an official source said, "The government can not afford to set Saeed free in the current circumstance". A Pakistani court on Wednesday ordered an end to the house arrest of Hafiz Saeed, media reports said.

The Rajput Karni Sena has said that the film has some scenes in between Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone who have played the role Alauddin Khilji and Queen Padmavati respectively.

Padmavati has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification without any cuts, but the producers say they are not planning to release the film without the Indian censor board's go-ahead.

However, while this means that nothing stops the film from releasing overseas (unless the Supreme Court intervenes), it also opens up the possibility of pirated versions of the movie being made available before it finally gets to open in India. In another development, as many as 42 people belonging to the Rajput community from Rajasthan were taken into preventive custody for staging a demonstration against the film's release in the State.
