  • Hindu right-wing organisations are angry about an alleged romantic scene begin filmed between Padmavati and Allauddin Khilji

"Padmavati" director Sanjay Leela Bhansali today appeared before a parliamentary standing committee on information technology to share his views on the controversy surrounding the film.

Meanwhile, the 30-member parliamentary panel on IT has also asked the producers of the movie and officials of the information and broadcasting ministry to attend the meeting and brief it on the furore related to the film, reports PTI.

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij too jumped into the controversy on Tuesday and said, "I am astonished that in a democracy we need court's permission to express ourselves".

"We are sure they (politicians) will be guided by the basic premise under the rule of law and not venture outside".

Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 submitted the new application yesterday, they said.

The court also junked a petition by lawyer Manohar Lal Sharma objecting to the offshore release of the film Padmavati. The first application has been returned to the makers of the movie because there were no disclaimers.

The film was scheduled for release on December 1, but it has been deferred since it has not got clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). A formal decision on the second application is still pending with the board.

Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud a bench of CBI said "The movie is before CBFC and a decision has not been taken yet".

"On November 20, the court, while rejecting Sharma's plea for the blocking the release of "Padmavati" within the country, had said: "'Padmavati' has not yet received certification from CBFC. They will restart our plan once the movie will get the certificate. There are historians which are also divided on whether the Rani Padmini really existed.

The court's remarks adopt implication with the chief ministers of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh banning the film.

The period drama, which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranvir Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles, has been facing protests from Shri Rajput Karni Sena for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
