Most theatre owners in Guj have decided against screening 'Padmaavat': Dy CM
The film, slated to be released on January 25, has been been facing protests by Karni Sena and other fringe groups over allegations that historical facts were distorted in the flick. "The government is trying its best to maintain law and order in the state", Patel told reporters in Gandhinagar. The 6 member panel has decided that they will watch the movie only after given a full proof security by the state government. Speaking to journalists in Rajkot, Kalvi warned movie buffs and said that if they are keen to watch the movie, they should watch it on the internet 10 days after of its release. It reached to a stage where the supreme court has entered the scene in protecting the creative freedom, freedom of speech and artistic freedom.
The police in Gujarat have been informed that the cinema owners will not screen the film and the decision in connection with screening the film on a later date will be taken afterwards. "Gujarat government had banned Padmaavat's release respecting the feelings of the Rajput community", he said.
However, the filmmakers' efforts appeared to have gone in vain as outfit founder Lokendra Singh Kalvi reiterated objections to the movie and said there will be "a public curfew" in cinema halls in various parts of the country, including Rajasthan, on January 25. Moreover, they seem to be giving themselves the credit that the protests forced the director to delete certain scenes from the movie. Even subsequent to the Supreme Court of India's strict orders to air the film without any conflict, these protests have carried on though state-imposed bans have been turned back.
A Maharashtra Minister, Jaykumar Rawal, appealed to people not to watch the film, saying Mr. Bhansali had tampered with the history to earn money.
Ahmedabad police commissioner A K Singh said several people have been arrested over the violence. Karni Sena has made representations to chief ministers of 17 states, as well as the Prime Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah, not to release the film.
