After Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat is the latest state to BAN 'Padmaavat'!

After Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat is the latest state to BAN 'Padmaavat'!

The movie was finally cleared with a few changes on the condition that Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures change the title from Padmavati to Padmavat to align it closer to its source material.

Despite incorporating the suggested changes by Central Board of Film Certification, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat", originally titled Padmavati, was unable to receive a nod from BJP-ruled states Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Hearing a petition filed by the director of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, seeking the quashing of an FIR lodged against him at Didwana in Merta in March past year, the court posted the matter to January 23. However the decision has not gone down well at the members of the Rajput Karni Sena, who have demanded a complete ban on the film. Its leader Lokendra Singh Kalvi alleged that history was being tinkered with and there was no room for a compromise with the filmmakers on the issue. The film's release was opposed by fringe groups on the accusation of distorting historical facts.

The film was previously scheduled to release on December 1. But we want it to release as soon as possible.

"The film should be canned and thrown into the flames of Jauhar". The matter was heard before the High Court's principal seat in Jodhpur.

So far, only Goa CM Manohar Parrikar has said the film will be allowed to release in his state.

He claimed that six states have announced a ban on the movie. "I will hold discussions with Delhi government in this regard". Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said his government would take a call on allowing the screening of the film after a decision of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) - which is yet to see the movie.
