Punjab chief minister captain Amarinder Singh, too, has said that films distorting history will not be allowed in his state.
Even Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had on Saturday written to Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani to ensure that "Padmavati" is not released without necessary changes. We respect their feelings and with elections on the anvil, the state government does not want any controversy.
The Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday said that it will not let Bollywood movie "Padmavati" be released in the state unless its "controversial portions" are removed. Rajput groups have alleged that Mr Bhansali has distorted facts in the film, which the director has denied.
Gujarat CM also asserted that while he does believe in freedom speech and expression, distortion of history and culture will not be tolerated.
Before any further questions asked on "Padmavati", Ranveer said: "Thank you very much for coming out today and before some ruckus happens here, I need to get out of here".
On Sunday, even a member of India's Hindu nationalist ruling party has offered 100 million rupees ($2 million AUS) to anyone who beheads the lead actor, Deepika Padukone, and the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, according to AP reports.
"The government will take a call upon the screening of Padmavati after the decision by CBFC", Khattar said adding that nobody would be allowed to hurt sentiments. But the parliamentary panel doesn't have a locus standi to take a decision on the film's release. "As "Padmavati" becomes a burning controversy, people are asking why the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, most versatile Aamir Khan and most popular Shah Rukh Khan have no comments", Sinha tweeted.
Kalvi also alleged to have received "life threats" from unknown numbers, one of which "was traced back to Karachi".
