Padmavati Movie Related Date and issues in releasing

With elections coming up in a couple of major states, the issue with Padmavati is just going to be raised every now and then. With all the fracas going around its content, it will be a miracle if the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie is even going to meet the release date of December 1. While the right-wing parties in Rajasthan want the movie to be banned, the politicians in Gujrat wants the movie to be postponed so that they have the elections run smoothly. Now we hear is that even the Uttar Pradesh government wants the movie’s release to be shifted as well, so that they can have the police focus properly on the upcoming election polls that are happening on the same.


The UP government has even written a letter to the Union I&B Ministry requesting them to postpone the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus. As per a report in TOI, they have a copy of the two-page letter, sent by principal secretary (home) Arvind Kumar to NK Sinha, secretary, Union I&B ministry. The letter mentions how a series of protests, following the release of the movie trailer, have affected the law and order situation in the country. The letter also states two objectionable scenes in the movie that have become of a bone of dissent among these political factions. The first one being the Ghoomar dance sequence which the Rajput outfits claim no Rajput queen ever performs in front of anyone. Apparently they have not heard of the word ‘cinematic liberty’.
The second scene is the dream sequence between Queen Padmini, played by Deepika Padukone, and Allaudin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, that the makers have vehemently denied is included in the movie. Here’s a para from the letter stating how various organisations want to stop the screening of the movie – “Various organisations have submitted memorandums demanding censoring of scenes in which Padmavati’s character has not been portrayed in a proper manner. They have also appealed to the theatre owners not to screen the film and have warned of violent protests and arson in case the film is screened at the theatres.”

Senior officers in the home department also find the release of the film as an additional burden on the police, thanks to the upcoming elections. “We have already sought central forces for law and order duty and in case of the film’s release on December 1, we will have to ensure the safety and security of theatres,” said a senior IPS officer supervising the security arrangements during the elections.
Meanwhile, In an exclusive conversation with TIMES NOW that has been recorded on spycam in Jaipur, the members of Rajput Karni Sena can be seen issuing death threats to Bhansali. One of the men even states they would even behead Sanjay Leela Bhansali if they have to stop the release of the movie. We wonder what the police has to say about this video.
