Padmaavat full movie leaked online: It sounds nearly unbelievable but it’s true. Controversial film Padmaavat was leaked online after the movie was live streamed on a Facebook page. According to various media reports, a Facebook page named Jaaton Ka Adda live streamed the film through its account. The Facebook page went live from inside the theatre when the Padmaavat was being screened. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film, which was originally titled “Padmavati”, got mired in controversy as soon as the filmmaker started shooting for the project and things took an ugly turn after the first trailer of the movie was released last year. The movie was scheduled to release on December 1, but the makers had to postpone the date after the censor board returned the movie to the producers citing “technical issues” in the certification form. The set of the movie was vandalised twice — in Jaipur and Kolhapur, while its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was roughed up by members of the Karni Sena last year.

A Facebook page named Jaaton Ka Adda live streamed the film through its account.

Meanwhile, as protests against the screening of “Padmaavat” raged at several places, the Centre on Thursday made it clear that maintenance of law and order is the responsibility of state governments. The states, which have witnessed violence, should deploy Rapid Action Force, which is trained to handle such mob protests, a senior Home Ministry official said. Maintenance of the law and order is the responsibility of the state governments and the central government has nothing to do with it except providing central forces, the official said requesting anonymity. Armed wing of the state police should also be deployed wherever there are possibilities of mob violence or protests against the film, the official said.

The film was cleared by censor board in India earlier this year and was given ‘U/A’ certificate. The board also suggested five modifications including the title change from ‘Padmavati’ to ‘Padmaavat’. The film, which hit the theaters today, is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles and is based on the saga of a historic battle of 13th century between Maharaja Ratan Singh and his army of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi.
