Not ready to watch Padmaavat's special screening: Karni Sena chief

A man walks past a poster of the movie'Padmavati outside a theatre in Mumbai

In the meantime, the Karni Sena too has moved the top court seeking a relook at the January 18 order by which the top court had paved the way for the film's countrywide release. The state government is trying its best to maintain law and order.

Demonstrations were held outside cinema theatres and on roads in several towns across the State, where the protesters raised slogans and demanded an apology from Mr. Bhansali.

Officials of the Rashtriya Karni Sena and the Rajput Karni Sena, the organisations which are vehemently opposing the release of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed movie, denied any responsibility over the violence.

With less than 24 hours left for the release of Bollywood movie Padmaavat, protests continued in various places in the country including Bhopal, Gurgaon, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad.

The top court last week set aside the notification passed by the states of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat to ban the release of "Padmaavat".

"We are ready to watch the film".

There are over 40 multiplexes and cinema halls in Gurgaon. It reached to a stage where the supreme court has entered the scene in protecting the creative freedom, freedom of speech and artistic freedom.

In a most recent development, Gujarat theatre owners have said no to screen the film, as there is a big terror of vandalism and threats which engulfs the state.

Even as Bhansali has clarified that there was no love-making scene between Alauddhin Khilji and Padmaavati even in a dream sequence, Kalvi maintained there was such a scene which has not been deleted.

In Porbandar, Mahatama Gandhi's birthplace, Kalvi said that when so many people from all walks of life were standing firm against the film, it will be a "huge insult for all of us" if it releases on January 25. He also claimed that he never accepted Bhansali's invitation to watch the film ahead of its release. Karni Sena has made representations to chief ministers of 17 states, as well as the Prime Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah.
