Supreme Court dismisses petition against release of Padmavati

Supreme Court dismisses petition against release of Padmavati

While almost one lakh members of the Sena community were seen at a massive gathering at Gandhinagar, thousands came into the street in a protest march in Surat with the same demand of blocking the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed Bollywood epic Padmavati.

At least 15 members of the Akhand Rajputana Seva Sangh were detained while they were protesting against the film in Mumbai.

"It is not a film, it is history". The rally started from Vanita Vishram and ended at district collectorate on Athwalines road where the protesters handed over a memorandum to district collector Mahendra Patel.Local VHP leader Dinesh Navadia said, "We would not let this film to be released". Padmavati, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, has been in the midst of a controversy since January, when members of the Rajput Karni Sena assaulted director Bhansali on the set of the movie in Jaipur, after which the shoot was shifted to Maharashtra.

The groups are protesting against the film alleging it violates the honour of Rani Padmini, the central character in the film, played by actress Deepika Padukone.

"We have learnt that there is a dream sequence in the movie wherein "Rani Padmavati" has been shown romancing with Allaudin Khilji".

The Supreme Court has refused to ban the film, stating that the censor board will give the green signal after following adequate guidelines.

He demands not only Gujarat, the film's release should be blocked anywhere in this country.

The film, jointly produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, is slated to release on December 1 in India and November 30 in the UAE.
