Gujarat government will not allow release of Padmavati in state, announces CM

Gujarat government will not allow release of Padmavati in state, announces CM

Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra has come out in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. He, however, made it clear that nobody would be allowed to hurt the sentiments of people belonging to a particular community. Sharma's lawyer Farid Khan said that the judge wanted to know how the film hurt sentiments of the complainant and why another complaint was necessary when there were other complaints and petitions on the film already being heard.

After Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat on Wednesday banned the screening of controversial Bollywood film Padmavati.

"We believe in freedom of speech and expression but any foul play with our great culture is not tolerated", said Rupani, in a tweet.

He also defended the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi who had slammed the makers for allowing the film to be screened for various media channels before certification. No one involved in the banning of the movie has watched the movie yet, but they're acting on the song released, Ghoomar, and the rumors of the vulgarization of Queen Padmavati.

"Thank you very much for coming out today and before some ruckus happens here, I need to get out of here." he said during the launch of a popular brand, while replying questions about the details of the movie. "The Censor Board did not act when the trailer of the film was released", said Sharma.

"There are elections here and there could be a law and order situation".

The new date of the release of the movie has not been announced so far. Karani Army alleges that romance has been shown in the movie between the Sultan of Allauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati of Delhi, which is tainted with history.

"Padmavati" has been facing the wrath of various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have accused Bhansali of distorting history.

Historians are divided on whether Padmini actually existed.
