MP CM announces ban on Padmavati till corrections

Meanwhile, Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi slammed the makers for allowing the film to be watched by various media heads before having the certificate in hand from the board. "But if somebody tries to distort the facts it wouldn't be tolerated", said Chouhan.The state government will also felicitate women with Padmavati award for exemplary work, he said.

Chouhan and his party members from the ruling BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) have been vocal against the film. Rajput groups feel that Bhansali may have misrepresented historical facts to suit his film's narrative. In the post, Malviya had written that filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali who understand "jooton ki bhasha" (language of shoes) can not understand the greatness of Rani Padmavati's jauhar, as female members in the family of such filmmakers change their husbands daily. And where have we reached as a nation?

There will be surely be another set of bans and controversies until the movie is approved by the CBFC and released, but for now, it is only working as a distraction for other, more important issues.

Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Padmavati" has run into massive trouble, first with fringe groups demanding a ban on the release of the film and then regarding its private screening.

The makers of Padmavati have even deferred the release date of the movie from Dec 1.

The move has been made following protest over the release of the movie.

Few activists of Rajput caste organization, Karni Sena, on Sunday morning stormed a movie theatre in Kolkata to protest against the release of Padmavati film, reports said.

Karni Sena members entered Navina cinema hall in south Kolkata on Sunday and shouted anti-Padmavati slogans.
