SC refuses plea to ban release of 'Padmavati'

Gupta, who is the General Secretary of the Uttar Bharatiya Morcha, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said that something "disgusting" was being done in the pursuit of earning money and for boosting one's career.

After hearing the arguments, the Court was of the view that the petition is premature as the prayer sought is the exact responsibility of the Censor Board under the Cinematograph Act, 1952. Lotwara told dna, "We would not take any responsibility if Sanjay Leeks Bhansali is beaten up by any youth whenever and wherever he is seen". He has also said there is nothing in the film that will hurt anyone's sentiments and sensibilities. He said that he had also written to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh demanding a case of treason be filed against Bhansali. "So I feel we need to look into it if there is any worldwide conspiracy behind it.", Swamy told ANI when asked about the Padmavati controversy.

Meanwhile, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film is mired in controversies as various fringe organisations and political parties have objected to his movie, claiming it "distorts history".

Kylie found it hilarious to play with the media by posting old pictures where she has abs instead of a baby bump. "Honestly, Kylie is just an emotional wreck right now".

Thirdly, I do not understand why there are protests when Bhansali in a video statement made it quite clear that there is no dream sequence in the film and nothing objectionable has been shown about Rani Padmini. Deepika Padukone will be seen playing the titular role Rani Padmini aka Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor a Rajput warrior - Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh the menacing Delhi Sultanate ruler- Sultan Alauddin Khilji in the upcoming historical drama.

Earlier on Friday, the Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay on the release of "Padmavati", saying the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was an independent body and the court should not intervene in their jurisdiction. There was no mention of Padmavati before Malik Muhammad Jayasi wrote the "Padmavat".
