"It listed the film on its official website, stating, "'Padmavati' (12A) moderate violence, injury detail". "If those threatening (the actors of the film) are guilty, Bhansali is no less guilty", PTI quoted the CM as saying.
The latest plot development in the saga of stalled film Padmavati is that it's been passed by the United Kingdom censor but will not release there on December 1 because the producers have chose to wait for clearance at home.
The issue regarding the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati has taken over Bollywood forcing actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha to raise a question as to why some vital people are silent.
However, while this means that nothing stops the film from releasing overseas (unless the Supreme Court intervenes), it also opens up the possibility of pirated versions of the movie being made available before it finally gets to open in India. "We will decide the release date of the film after getting the certificate from the CBFC".
Surajpal Singh Amu, a member of the BJP in northern Haryana state, is apparently upset about an upcoming movie, Padmavati, starring actress Deepika Padukone as the 16th-century Hindu queen Padmini.
Though the decision of the British censors may appear like a moment of triumph for the beleaguered cast and crew of the film which has been facing abuse, threats of violence and even death in India, the approval for screening has also left the filmmakers of Padmavati in a piquant situation. The government will not allow its release in the state.
The hero from the past said that he will speak about the controversy keeping in mind the interest of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the sensitivity of the Rajputs.
When returning Padmavati application to producers, CBFC had said that the new application may have to wait for 68 days - a rule censor board had all along but was never implemented - before it was certified. We can't allow our history to be distorted. This has been followed by the violent protests by a Rajasthan-based Rajput group, Shri Rajput Karni Sena. "If those issuing threats are guilty, Bhansali is no less guilty". "Some of the historic facts may not be in consonance with our thinking....those who are opposing, first they should see the movie".
