Gujarat also bans release of 'Padmavati'

Deepika Padukone

"If historical facts are distorted, and if anything is shown or said in the movie against the respect of the country's mother, Padmavatiji', then that movie can not be allowed for release in Madhya Pradesh", Chouhan said while addressing members of the Rajput community here at his residence.

Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana all BJP ruled states - and Punjab, ruled by the Congress, have already opposed the release of the movie. "We believe in freedom of speech and expression but any foul play with our great culture is not tolerated", the Gujarat CM told PTI.

"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. Facing massive opposition at home, Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie Padmavati was cleared uncut by the British censors even as the Supreme Court agreed on Thursday to hear a plea seeking directions that the film is not released overseas on December 1.

Recently, the makers of the film made a decision to postpone its release taking into consideration the constant threats and protests against Padmavati, its director, and actors.

His statements follow the latest controversy over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical film Padmavati, which has sparked nationwide protests and outrage.

As the film was suppose to release on December 1, there are over 50 countries where this process (of certification) is on, he said. Another senior Union Minister, Birender Singh, said those opposing Padmavati should first watch the film.

Moreover, the CBFC has recently sent back the film to its makers citing "technical deficiencies".

On Sunday, even a member of India's Hindu nationalist ruling party has offered 100 million rupees ($2 million AUS) to anyone who beheads the lead actor, Deepika Padukone, and the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, according to AP reports.

Historians are divided on whether Rani Padmavati even existed but irate Rajput groups have called the film an insult to their honour. Many of these groups are giving death threats to the stars and the director of the movie.

We can't allow our history to be distorted.
