Rally against 'Padmavati' movie in Bengaluru on Wednesday

'Padmavati' controversy: Protests in Gujarat, Maharashtra

Over 50 activists of the Rajput Karni Sena on Tuesday afternoon vandalized the Aakash cinema hall at the Aakash Mall near Aerodrome circle under the Gumanpura police station area for allegedly screening the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed movie "Padmavati" in between the ongoing movie at the theatre.

Armed with sticks and rods, the group of men went on a rampage as they broke glass windows and doors of the cinema hall in Akash Mall and raised slogans against the filmmakers. According to reports, 8 people have been arrested relating to the incident.

"In a democracy everyone has right to protest". Bhansali is continuously saying that he has taken care of Rajput's pride and emotions and there is nothing in this film which will disgrace them. Stepping up the protests against the release of the movie, some members of Karni Sena vandalised a theatre in Rajasthan for screening the trailer of the film. They had issued warnings that they would set theatres on fire if the movie was screened.

The incident took place a day after makers of the film agreed to screen it for those who had doubts about its content once the film was passed by the censor board.

In January, Karni Sena protested, manhandled and misbehaved with the crew of "Padmavati" claiming that Bhansali was distorting historical facts in the film.

" The film starring Deepika Padukone as Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khalji, is based on the legend of Rajput queen Padmavati".

Even recently, SLB had released a video in which he is seen clarifying that Padmavati has no derogatory scene or distortion of facts. "You can not just show anything in the name of a film", said Lokendra Singh Kalvi, the president of the Rajput Karni Sena in Gujarat capital Gandhinagar.
