Padmaavat Clash: 35 supporters of Karni Sena detained in Mumbai

A still from ‘Padmaavat

In Porbandar, Mahatama Gandhi's birthplace, Kalvi said that when so many people from all walks of life were standing firm against the film, it will be a "huge insult for all of us" if it releases on January 25. "The government is trying its best to maintain law and order in the state", Patel told reporters in Gandhinagar. Speaking to journalists in Rajkot, Kalvi warned movie buffs and said that if they are keen to watch the movie, they should watch it on the internet 10 days after of its release. SRKS chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi on Monday warned the cinema hall owners of dire consequences if they went ahead with the release of the film. It reached to a stage where the supreme court has entered the scene in protecting the creative freedom, freedom of speech and artistic freedom. "Gujarat government had banned Padmaavat's release respecting the feelings of the Rajput community", he said. Home minister Gulab Chand Kataria said that erstwhile Mewar royal Arvind Singh was among the panel of three people who had watched the film.

The movie, which was earlier titled Padmavati, will now be released worldwide on January 25 with the new title suggested by the censor board.

A special screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Padmaavat" was held for mediapersons in the national capital.


Tushar Mehta, appearing for the state of Rajasthan, argued before SC, "I am not saying that allow me to ban the film, I had moved the Apex Court for certain modification of the Apex court's earlier interim order". Moreover, they seem to be giving themselves the credit that the protests forced the director to delete certain scenes from the movie.

Maintaining that states were under constitutional obligation to maintain law and order, the top court had said this duty also included providing police protection to persons involved in the film, its exhibition and the audience.

Be as it might, the producers Viacom 18 and Bhansali can breathe a sigh of relief and now release the film on schedule without fear of a backlash.
