Padmavati : Rajput group threatens protests in UK!

24 November 2017

The British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) has cleared "Padmavati" for release on December 1 but a source close to the film's makers said it won't release anywhere on that date.

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.

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear on November 28 a fresh petition for a direction to the producers of film Padmavati not to release it in the United Kingdom or in any other country outside India on December 1.

As the film was supposed to be released on December 1, there are over 50 countries where this process (of certification) is on, he said. The official website of BBFC stated that the uncut version of the movie Padmavati will be released in the UK.

"Besides that the law and order is also our responsibility, so we have decided that we will not allow release of movie "Padmavati" in Gujarat", he said. We can't allow our history to be distorted. Asked if he had seen the film, he said, "The makers of the film should screen it for those who are protesting against it and resolve the issue. Even if the film is released outside India, it will eventually be pirated to India".

Domestically-oriented sectors like the health, education & social services sector are also expected to remain resilient. Year-on-year Q3 GDP growth hits 3.6% in real term, lower than Q2's 3.9%.

"Masaan" director Neeraj Ghaywan" and "Pihu" helmer Vinod Kapri expressed concern, while veteran actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's silence on the controversy. Everyone is surprised by the fact that there's a bounty on Deepika Padukone's head. Padmavati, mired for months in controversy, has been refused certification by the Prasoon Joshi-led Censor Board because of an "incomplete" application.

"It's time for our honourable Prime Minister to say "enough is enough".

In spite of Bhansali stating that there is nothing in the film that will hurt the so-called pride of the Rajput community, the Karni Sena refuses to budge.

Historians are divided on whether Padmini actually existed.
