“Padmavati“, the 190-crore film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has drawn angry protests in Rajasthan where fringe groups like the Karni Sena says the movie “distorts history”. Though they have not seen the movie, leaders of the Karni Sena and several politicians say the 13th-century queen, Padmini, has been disrespected by Mr Bhansali suggesting in his movie that she was romantically involved with Muslim invader Alauddin Khilji.
Mr Bhansali has rejected any allusion to a love story, but several BJP-ruled expresses including Rajasthan have banned the movie, declaring they will not permit it to screen even if it’s cleared by the sensor table, which includes yet to examine the film. “Padmavati” has been made by Viacom-18; the studio has suggested it’ll wait for the film’s release, originally planned for December 1, to next year.
Padmini, according to the legend, was a Rajput warrior queen from Chittor in Rajasthan who placed herself on fire to save her honour after Khilji defeated her man in battle.
The Karni Sena has threatened Mr Bhansali and his lead actress, Deepika Padukone, with violence. Both have been given state security. The Supreme Court has so far refused to ban the film. Union ministers like Uma Bharti have said the director should talk with historians and protestors to review objectionable scenes and delete them. thus to avoid any further obstacle, Padmavati will be first reviewed by former Royals, Historians.
