Raje said that respecting the sentiments of the people of the state, the movie will not be screened in any cinema hall. Rajput outfits had announced that they will protest the release of the film at “any cost”. Several organisations threatened to gather at cinema halls with batons and petrol to protest the release.
Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje said Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film “Padmavati” — retitled “Padmavat” — which has been at the centre of a controversy for weeks, will not be released in Rajasthan
Media reported that the movie is set for a January 25 release, Raje said in a statement that respecting the sentiments of the people of the state, the movie will not be screened in any cinema hall in Rajasthan. “…Rani Padmini’s sacrifice is a matter of honour and pride for the state and hence Rani Padmini is not just a chapter in history but our dignity. We will not allow defamation of her honour,” read the statement. It said necessary directives have also been issued to ensure this.
The move to ban ‘Padmavat’ in Rajasthan comes at a time when Rajput outfits have announced that they will protest the release of the film at “any cost”. Several Rajput organisations came together on Monday to protest the release and even threatened to gather at cinema halls with batons and petrol to protest the release.
