Now, Gujarat too bans release of 'Padmaavat'

From being named "Padmavati" to "Padmaavat", Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film has had a tough ride so far. "I don't want to say anything else on the matter". "Of course, there has been the whole controversy around "Padmavati" but it is such a special film. I respect art but when it comes to people's sentiments being hurt, it must be thought about and discussed".

However, on Saturday, Thakur clarified that his government has no plans to ban the film. 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. "But, if despite all these measures the film is released, the women of Kshatriya Samaj will perform Jauhar on January 24 - the day when the queen performed Jauhar - and at the same site", said Virendra Singh. The onus is now on the producer cum director to publicize about the movie in a right way, after all the distractions it has faced in the last one month. Senior Home Department officials told news agency that there was no order as such to ban the proposed release of the film in the state.
