Digvijaya Singh reacts to Padmavat; as film gets released today
Former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh also has reacted to the ongoing protests on Padmavat movie.
He said that films that hurt religious sentiments of people and which are not based on historical facts should not be made.
It need be mentioned that the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film got screened on January 25 amid violent protests across the country by Karni Sena and other Rajput outfits.
Interestingly, Singh’s remark came after party president Rahul Gandhi condemned the violent protests by Karni Sena and attack on a school bus by anti-Padmavat protesters in Gurugram.
The reaction comes in backdrop of the fact that theatre owners in Madhya Pradesh decided not to screen “Padmavat” even as the state witnessed protests and bandh in several places.
The state government, however, said it was ready to provide security if the theatre owners wanted to screen the movie.
A delegation of cinema and multiplex owners, under the aegis of the Central Cine Circuit Association (CCCA), met Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh and later announced that they would not screen the film as of now.>
