Heres the latest in Padmavat film related furore in states
With no respite from top court over demands of banning the Padmavat film release, the distributors in Rajasthan have said that they won’t screen Padmavat any more.
Another major development in the sequence of events was that Chittor Fort had to be closed down today for the second time in the history of the UNESCO world heritage site.
The fort had to be sealed in view of the Karni Sena’s attempts to enter inside.
With women having pledged to commit jauhar if the film gets released, police has stepped up its deployment to prevent any unpleasant situations.
Even though yet another attempt was made when an advocate pleaded for urgent hearing wherein he had demanded deletion of certain scenes from Padmavat was made, the petition was listed for Monday hearing.
Despite tall claims of security being stepped up post the Supreme Court verdict on the film, the Gujarat capital faced the brunt of the protestors from yesterday night.
Rajput groups have been demanding that the film Padmavat be banned because it hurts their sentiments and shows one of their revered queens in poor light. >
