Various outfits hold protest to seek ban on ‘Padmavati’

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Hundreds of people associated with various community organisations today took out a morcha here demanding a ban on the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film "Padmavati" which is slated to release on December 1.

Shouting slogans, the protesters, a large number of them women, marched through the main streets of the city and reached the district collectorate. They were also carrying placards with messages denouncing the movie and calling for a ban on it for allegedly "distorting" historical facts.

A delegation consisting of members from the outfits which took part in the demonstration later submitted a memorandum to the Maharashtra government, through the district collector, seeking a ban on the controversial film. Divya Kumari, a BJP MLA from Rajasthan, who took part in the morcha, said "The women of Rajasthan are very upset with this film."

Various groups, most of them from the Rajpur community, have accused Bhansali of "distorting" historical facts in the film which features Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Bhansali, however, has said in the past that the film is his tribute to the "sacrifice, valour and honour" of Rani Padmavati. He has also said there is nothing in the film that will hurt anyone's sentiments and sensibilities.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
