Two states approach court against ‘Padmavat’ release; heres latest situation
The Padmavat controversy just does appear to stop as two of the states have now moved Supreme Court against release of the movie that is said to be hurtful of the Rajput sentiments.
The film is set to be released on January 25 of this year.
The two states namely Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have petitioned the top court for a review of the decision on the film’s release.
They have argued that law and order situation might emerge if the film gets released. The court has agreed to hear their petition tomorrow.
Fierce protests from various Rajput groups meanwhile continues.
This is the situation when the apex court had already cleared the way for film’s release and said that law and order is the responsibility of the states.
Despite the verdict, the Rajput Karni Sena has led protests against the big ticket period film has vowed to burn theatres that screen Padmaavat.
Protesters argue that the film distorts history and shows Rani Padmini, a legendary Rajput Queen renowned for her beauty, in poor light.>
