Padmaavat banned in Gujarat after Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh


A Times of India report says that the film will release as planned on January 25, although no official confirmation regarding the release date has been issued.

Mumbai: After Rajasthan Chief Minister made a decision to ban Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" in the state, On Friday Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani announced that the controversial film will not hit theatres in his state, as per reports. "Jo kaha hai wahi hoga [whatever I said earlier would continue to remain in force]", the Madhya Pradesh chief minister told reporters.

While speaking to some members of the Rajput community on November 20 past year, Chouhan had made it clear that the film would not be allowed to release in the state if it contains scenes "breaching the honour" of the Rajput queen Padmavati or features "distorted facts".

The launched satellites include the weather observation Cartosat-2 series, two more satellites from India and 28 other nations. India will use its latest satellites for better border surveillance and to obtain high-resolution images of the earth.

The film has been granted clearance from the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) after shortening of the title and some modifications in the script. We will not tolerate any distortion of historical facts. Some Karni Sena members are found protesting outside Censor Board of Film Certification office in order to put a permanent ban on the release.

Earlier, on January 8, Rajasthan too banned the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. This, of course, didn't go down well with the Rajputs and Karni Sena, who started vandalising properties, protesting, threatening to burn theatres and doing everything to ban the film.

Uttarakhand goverment has also not announced anything to stop the release from the film while fringe group workers met CM Trivendra Singh Rawat in Dehradun on Tuesday and demanded that the film not be allowed to be screened in the hill state.
