The Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced on Monday that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial flick ‘Padmavati’ will not be allowed to release in the state as it misrepresented history. After listening to several organizations belonging to Rajput community who met him at his official residence and asked for a movie ban, the chief minister came to the conclusion that the film will not be released in Madhya Pradesh.
“We have been reading about the queen’s sacrifice from childhood. Distortion of history will not be tolerated,” the chief minister said. He further added that the film won’t be released until the objectionable scenes are removed he will not allow the film to be released across the state. Earlier to it, the UP government had told I&B Ministry that the film may have an “adverse effect” on law and order in UP. The Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi, at the same time, had also criticized very harshly the makers for letting the film to be screened for several media channels before getting a certificate from the board. The Padmavati row is getting uglier day by day and Bhansali’s film has also been postponed for the same reason.
