Padmaavat movie release LIVE Updates: Grey clouds refuse to move away from the Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’. After winning the long legal battle, the movie’s screening is turning out to be a nightmare. The nation, on Wednesday, (January 24), witnessed violent protests with many malls being vandalised and buses being burnt. Earlier, the Karni Sena chief, Lokendra Kalvi, in a press conference, announced to withdraw all protests against the movie. However, the Karni Sena chief pleaded the nation to shun the movie calling for a ‘Janta Curfew’. The security was tightened at many places in order to keep the law and order intact. A special screening was also kept for the Karni Sena yesterday (January 23). However, that doesn’t seem to have paved the way for the smooth screening of the movie.
