A still from ‘Padmaavat
The solution to the current imbroglio that has overtaken Padmaavat has been found. Members of the Karni Sena watched the film on Tuesday evening and gave it a clean chit.
Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh said, "Section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed in view of release of the Padmaavat in various cinema halls and multiplexes on January 25 as there is likelihood of law and order disturbance".
The Supreme Court had earlier paved the way for the all-India release of 'Padmaavat' on 25 January and stayed notifications and orders issued by Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat-all ruled by the BJP-prohibiting exhibition of the film in their states. "If the law and order gets disturbed, it will be the State government's responsibility. They also told us that the decision as to whether to screen the film on a later date will be taken afterwards", he added. Tyres were burnt to block roads in Pokhran, Bhilwara and Sawai Madhopur. Karni Sena Chief said he visited the Sabarmati Ashram in the morning to avoid violence as things are going out of hand and the public does not want to see their mother Padmavati on the screen dancing in public. Slamming the central and state governments, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal says that if the government can't ensure the safety of a film in their respective states, how can they expect investors to invest in a business there. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal activists joined the protest at several places. "We appeal to people to voluntarily boycott the film", Nitin Patel said. "Both Karni Sena and the erstwhile rulers of Mewar become party to the state government's petition", said Kataria.
A Maharashtra Minister, Jaykumar Rawal, appealed to people not to watch the film, saying Mr. Bhansali had tampered with the history to earn money. "We won't allow you to watch it in cinema halls". The miscreants, who were said to be opposed to the screening of the film, came with their faces covered.
