A little bit relieving and good news for the people who are eagerly waiting for SLB’s most controversial film Padmaavat. Yesterday Supreme Court has lifted the ban from the film release which was imposed by BJP-ruled states.
So, now Deepika, Shahid and Ranveer starrer film Padmaavat will release on the scheduled date, 25 January 2018.
Well, Gujarat and Haryana State governments have said that they would study the decision of the apex court. BJP ruled states are unhappy over Supreme Court’s decision.
Haryana minister Anil Vij said that his government would appeal against the verdict, while MP home minister Bhoopendra Singh warned people against even playing songs from the movie.
Gujarat, MP, Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh had officially or unofficially banned screening of the movie.
Meanwhile, Women in Rajasthan have pledged to commit ‘Jauhar’ on 24th January. Mahipal Makrana, President of Shri Rajput Karni Sena said, “Rajput women will commit Jauhar on January 24 at Chittorgarh. Total 1826 women have registered for it.”
Sarv Samaj Samiti of Chittorgarh and Shri Rajput Karni Sena are organizing Jauhar in Rajasthan.
Sanjay Leela’s Padmaavat film has been one of the most controversial films in the history of India, even before release.
Padmaavat film, earlier titled ‘Padmavati’ trailer got immense popularity and love from people. However, Rajput Karni Sena is not agreeing to release the film, which is based on Rani Padmaavat. Though Makers have released disclaimer in a daily, Karni Sena is not ready to allow the release.
BJP ruled states Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh and Haryana banned Padmaavat despite CBFC cleared it.
So makers moved to Supreme Court to appeal for their film. Now, Supreme Court granted green signal to release of the film.
The Supreme Court, in its interim order has said that, all states are constitutionally obliged to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident during the screening of the film across India, a permission granted by CBFC.
Gujarat Minister of State for Home Pradipsinh Jadeja said the Gujarat government will study the order and clear their stance. The government still believes the film can create turbulence in society, said Jadeja.
