Padmavati row: Why us, let Censor board decide, says LK Advani at House panel meet
"It is premature for people to pass judgment on the film without even watching it, though I fail to understand why such intense controversy happens before his [Bhansali's] films are released?"
Sources said the panel likely to view "Padmavati" will include historians and that the film's producers have re-submitted their application to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), this time filling in the relevant entry stating whether the movie was based on a work of fiction or historical events. Some panel members said it seemed that Bhansali's movies tend to target communities, thus triggering social tension.
Though film has not been screened officially, there has been a pre-screening of the movie for a select people, including journalists, a few weeks ago.

Earlier in the day, the censor board chief also appeared before the Parliamentary Committee on Petitions to brief its members about the controversy. He said, "Once the film director provides the clarifications, we will consider showing the film in Bihar", further emphasising that he doesn't want unnecessary controversy surrounding screening of the film before the current objections are resolved. The makers of the movie have responded the question on how the makers of the movie can send the movie to the United Kingdom for the certification.
The members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT asked many questions to Bhansali who appeared before the panel alongside Prasoon Joshi, who heads the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
