Movie Padmavati row: Rajasthan government finds itself in a tough spot

Sanjay Leela Bhansali attacked in Jaipur

As the certification by the Censor Board is yet to be granted qua the film, hence it was premature for the petitioners to seek the relief as prayed.

The movie is slated for release on December 1. They further requested a stay order on the release of Padmavati, until and unless the historical errors are corrected by the director. Well, right now the movie is battling a controversy as the Karni Sena threatens that they would not let this movie release if the story is inappropriate, the issue is being politicalized by the politicians.

Gupta also said he had written a letter to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh asking him to take cognisance into the matter.

When is the film likely to be certified?

Gupta's statement came after Bhansali released a video, saying that there was no romantic scene between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji in his film.

What is their stand on the political uproar over the movie's content? Sanjay has personally assured in a video that the film celebrates the Queen and Rajput valour, dignity and traditions. Rational public opinion should ensure that a balance is retained between fact and fiction, artistic license and objectionable distortion", he said to TOI from Jodhpur."There has hardly been any serious attempt to make a proper historical film in our country , As Reported By TOI. There is nothing in the film that should cause any worry. He appealed to CBFC not to pass certification to the movie.

In response, Joshi on Friday said it was unfortunate to see a personal point of view expressed by an advisory panel member of the CBFC. To add fuel to the fire, Shahid Kapoor, who is playing Rawal Ratan Singh in the film, is reportedly upset with the makers for highlighting and giving more preference to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
