Supreme Court refuses to Ban release of "Padmavati"

Supreme Court refuses to Ban release of

Gupta, who is the General Secretary of the Uttar Bharatiya Morcha, BJP, said something "disgusting" is being done in the pursuit of earning money and for boosting one's career. Protests against filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati spread to eastern Rajasthan on Thursday where people from different communities came to oppose the film's release as they fear that the film might distort history. "We will speak with the director regarding this issue", Kataria said.

Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Friday termed as "unfortunate" the political remarks concerning the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati" and said the allegations against it "were outlandish". That means every movie before it is cleared or rejected by censor board, will be cleared or rejected by us. "We have respect for Mr Bhansali as an individual and artist", Joshi told ANI.

The plea had alleged that the movie wrongly depicted Rani Padmavati in the movie and distorted and twisted historical facts.

Gupta has also appealed to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to "not certify this film".

The film is scheduled to release on December 1 and stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the lead.

Padmavati is based on the legend of Rani Padmini, a Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi language epic poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540.

Bhansali and his team have repeatedly assured the opponents that there are no romantic scenes between Deepika and Ranveer in the film.

Besides seeking a stay on the release of the movie, the plea had also sought setting up of a committee of eminent historians to check the veracity of the script to prevent any inaccuracy in portrayal of Rani Padmavati.
