Latest news on banned movie “Padmavati”

Chandigarh 11/30/17: The release of “Padmavati,” which was scheduled for 1 Dec, has been delayed because of the controversy over allegations that the film attempts to “distorts history” and offends the sensibilities of Rajputs, with some groups protesting and even threatening actor Deepika Padukone, who plays queen Padmavati in the film, with physical harm.

Latest update on banned movie Padmavati

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has denied reports that his film suggests a romance between Rajput warrior queen Padmini and Delhi sultan Alauddin Khilji. Legend says the queen jumped into fire after her husband was killed in battle to ensure that Khilji would not capture her.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed another appeal to ban “Padmavati” and rebuked the Chief Ministers and others who have spoken out against the film, saying, “those holding public offices should not comment on such issues.”

The judges said it is the prerogative of the national censor board to review the film and make a decision on whether it is suitable for screening.
