Former royal family of Jaipur threaten to oppose 'Padmavati' release

Raj Bansal, a leading film distributor from Rajasthan, said: "We don't want to get involved in this controversy; our company has chose to not get involved in this film until this controversy is sorted out". But because of some rumours, the film is being dragged into a controversy.

The Karni Sena has allegedly threatened to burn the theatres if the film is played in cinema halls before it is shown to them.

This is published unedited from the ANI feed. That is why we stopped the shooting and told the makers that we won't let them continue unless they make changes.

In a latest interview to Filmfare, Singh has also said he has no scenes with Deepika. It was really hard for me because I was just about to get to understand the character, which I am playing, what is the character, who is she, how she dances and looks, what would be her body language and mannerisms. Another distributor, Sanjay Chatar, said that the filmmaker and those objecting to the film should settle the controversy first. This country will not disrespect Rani Padmavati. We will not tolerate any distortion of our history.

Under CBFC guidelines, a film has to be submitted for certification 68 days before its release.

BJP MLA Diya Kumari, of the erstwhile royal family of Jaipur, tweeted on Tuesday: "I will not allow any distortion of the valiant history of Rajasthan & Sacrifice of its people in fighting barbarians by movie #Padmavati".

According to the Newspaper, Many film distributors have refused to release film "Padmavati" in state Rajasthan.

It seems that the upcoming magnum opus which is expected to release on December 1, has given birth to a fresh controversy since it has not been submitted to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), for clearance yet.
