Indian Movie Padmavati banned in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Punjab



The release of much anticipated Indian film Padmavati directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali on a whopping budget of Rs 180 crore has been banned by the state governments of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Punjab.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Monday confirmed that Padmavati will not be released in Rajasthan till the necessary changes are made in the film keeping in mind the sentiments of the Rajput community.

Earlier in the day, the state Home Minister said the state is considering a ban on the movie within the state as per the legal framework and is seeking legal advice.

Raje wrote a letter to the Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani on Saturday and demanded “necessary changes” in the movie before its release so that the “sentiments of any community are not hurt”.

According to Rajasthan’s Chief Minister, the film and its plot need to be reviewed by a committee of renowned historians, film personalities, and representatives of society at large.

Maintaining law and order in Rajasthan was the highest priority and it will be maintained at all cost, CM Raje said.

Earlier, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has also banned the Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick in the state of Madhya Pradesh citing the same reason that sentiments of a particular community should not be hurt at all.

Captain Amarinder Singh has also expressed not wanting Padmavati release in Punjab. Talking to media, he said, ”Nobody will accept the distortion of history and those who are protesting are rightly doing so.’‘

Supreme court refuses to ban Padmavati

The Supreme Court refused a plea seeking to ban the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial ‘Padmavati’ epic drama featuring Deepika Padukone as a Rajput queen. The Supreme court has asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to review the film’s plot and its authenticity with respect to the history of Rani Padmini.

Padmavati release postponed as protests, threats continue

The Kshatriya Samaj has already announced a reward of Rs 5 crore on beheading Deepika Padukone. Other communities like the Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Mahasabha (ABKM) has also put a reward of Rs 1 crore to anyone burning the Bollywood actress alive.

Stating that the actress should realize how it feels when Rani Padmavati had performed Jauhar to save her modesty, the ABKM President reportedly said that Deepika would know the real character of Rani Padmavati
