  • Most theatre owners in Guj have decided against screening 'Padmaavat': Dy CM

The state government is trying its best to maintain law and order. The 6 member panel has decided that they will watch the movie only after given a full proof security by the state government.

Addressing media persons, Kalvi said their outfit has announced a "janta curfew" on January 25 when Padmaavat will be released, adding, "Bhansali will be responsible for whatever happens before Republic Day".

Rajput Karni Sena activists in Bihar on Tuesday forced cinema hall owners to stop advance booking for the film.

Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh said, "Section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed in view of release of the Padmaavat in various cinema halls and multiplexes on January 25 as there is likelihood of law and order disturbance".

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court refused to modify its order, rejecting pleas filed by Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh governments.


Tushar Mehta, appearing for the state of Rajasthan, argued before SC, "I am not saying that allow me to ban the film, I had moved the Apex Court for certain modification of the Apex court's earlier interim order". "We appeal to people to voluntarily boycott the film", Nitin Patel said.

Padmaavat, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has becomes one of the most controversial Indian movie of the decade.

Even as Bhansali has clarified that there was no love-making scene between Alauddhin Khilji and Padmaavati even in a dream sequence, Kalvi maintained there was such a scene which has not been deleted.

"Considering the threats from the Karni Sena and other fringe Rajput groups, we are thinking of giving security cover to Joshi whose visit to Jaipur on Thursday coincides with the release of the film", a ministry official said. Such information was spread to mislead people, Kavi said. Karni Sena has made representations to chief ministers of 17 states, as well as the Prime Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah.
