Karni Sena issues fresh threat, says won't allow release of 'Padmavat'

Deepika Padukone in'Ghoomar song from'Padmavati

On December 30, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chose to give the movie UA certificate with the suggestion that the title of the movie be changes to "Padmavat" from "Padmavati".

Meanwhile, more than 100 Shri Rajput Karni Sena workers were detained on Friday for protesting outside the CBFC office in Mumbai in connection with the release of "Padmavat".

A Karni Sena member also met up Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in Dehradun, and asked him not to screen the film in the state. Among the suggested modifications was that of a title change as well.

The censor board cleared the film with a U/A certificate despite protests from the members of the Rajput Karni Sena. The disclaimer before any film says that this film is a work of fiction and one of the fundamental human rights is the right to freedom of expression.

"Padmavati", now renamed as "Padmavat", was earlier scheduled to release on December 1, 2017, but continuous protests and CBFC fiasco forced the makers to shift the date.

Apart from this, changes have been ordered in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction "befitting" the character being portrayed.

"Addition of a disclaimer which clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it". All the two actors will be under round-the-clock security cover until the release of the movie.

Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, had said his lavishly mounted Rs 150-crore period drama is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The movie, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, is slated to release on 25 January but the Rajasthan government has said they won't allow it to be exhibited in the state. "From the past one and a half year, we have been talking peacefully but now it is time to take up the path of aggression", said Sukhdev.
