Padmavati: Delhi HC dismisses plea seeking pre-screening

Karni Sena threatens to burn theatres in UK after Britain Censor Board clears 'Padmavati'

After urging the country's Supreme Court to stay Padmavati's release, the Karni Sena has called for a countrywide strike on 1 December. M.P and Rajasthan and they have banned the movie until the protest will die down.

According to the official website of the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC), "Padmavati" will be released "uncut" in the UK.

Noting that the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against release of the film was "hopeless" and "misconceived", the court said such pleas only encourage people who are agitating against the period drama. "But this time with the film, the reason for the outrage is even more puzzling". The matter was taken up for consideration by the Lok Sabha Committee on Petitions after two BJP MPs from Rajasthan, CP Joshi and Om Birla, filed a plea regarding objectionable content in the movie.

Members of Rajput community raise slogans and hold placards during the protest against upcoming Bollywood movie "Padmavati" at Faridabad, in Haryana, Nov. 18.

The apex court had said that the CBFC was a statutory body and court can not give it directions on matters of film certification.

The film's producers, however, say it will not be screened in British theatres before it is cleared in India.

Sharma had approached the court seeking a direction for removal of all scenes of alleged "character assassination" of Queen Padmavati from the movie before its release.

Actor Shraddha Kapoor today said what is happening with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed "Padmavati" is extremely sad.

Meanwhile, the makers of the movie have voluntarily deferred its release, to get the requisite clearances from the censor board.

The court has not directly sent the complaint to police for registration of FIR but has asked for recording of statement of the complainant.
