Padmaavat row: The controversy-hit Bollywood film “Padmaavat” continued to see repeated protests on Saturday against its release. In the latest development, the Bhansali Productions has sent a letter to Shree Rajput Karni Sena and Shree Rajput Sabha, inviting them to watch the film. As per the report, the letter has once again stated that there is no dream sequence or love scene in the movie between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. The letter also stated that the honour and valour of Rani Padmavati have been portrayed with utmost dignity and respect.
The letter reportedly said that the Bhansali Productions has mentioned by saying to the members of the Rajput organization that what they have been protesting about (alleged dream sequence or alleged romantic relation between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji) is not there in the film and was never there as given to them in writing on 29.01.2017 in Jaipur.
As per the letter, Bhansali has reportedly assured the Karni Sena that the film will make the entire Rajput Community proud and therefore invited them to see this for themselves. The letter reportedly requested the Rajput caste group to extend their cooperation for peaceful release of our film, after watching it. The letter, however, does not have any date mentioned for viewing the film.
This came after, the members of Karni Sena created a ruckus in connection to the controversial Bollywood film “Padmaavat” earlier in the day. On Saturday, the members of the Rajput organization stage protest against the film in Ambala and threatened to burn down the theatres if they screen the film. The fringe outfit has also announced Bharat Bandh on 25 January over the release of the film.
Karni Sena, a week before the release of Padmaavat, made an appeal to people to lay curfews at theatres across the country to stop the screening of the film Padmaavat. The call from the outfit came just a few days after the Supreme Court ruled that a ban imposed on the film’s release by four states is illegal and directed state governments to provide security to cinema halls.
