Not ready to watch Padmaavat's special screening: Karni Sena chief

A still from ‘Padmaavat

The Shree Rajput Karni Sena, a group opposing film "Padmaavat", said today it was ready to watch the Bollywood period drama as offered by Bhansali productions to end the deadlock on the issue.

With the police gearing up to deal with the law and order situation, Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said the State government would comply with the apex court's direction and facilitate the film's exhibition if it was released.

The top court last week set aside the notification passed by the states of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat to ban the release of "Padmaavat". "If the law and order gets disturbed, it will be the State government's responsibility". More people are likely to be taken into preventive custody, he said. The 6 member panel has decided that they will watch the movie only after given a full proof security by the state government. Tyres were burnt to block roads in Pokhran, Bhilwara and Sawai Madhopur. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has tried everything possible to live up to everyone's expectations and abided by the cuts and censorships imposed by the Karni Sena group and the CBFC. "We appeal to people to voluntarily boycott the film", Nitin Patel said.

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".

Rajput Karni Sena activists in Bihar on Tuesday forced cinema hall owners to stop advance booking for the film. "There is no dream sequence or intimate scene between Padmavati and Allauddin Khilji", Suresh Chavhanke, who played the role of a mediator between the filmmakers and Karni Sena supporters, told reporters after watching the film.

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.

"Most theatres have declined to screen the film, despite the green signal from the Supreme Court".
