The Shree Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena has demanded a ban on "Padmavati". The organization has also slammed Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani along with censor board chief Prasoon Joshi for allowing its release with a U/A certificate. Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, President of Karni Sena, today stated to media;
I want to ask the central government what benefits will they get by supporting this movie? All the Hindu parties from whom we learnt about Hinduism are quiet on this film
The central government is mum on this film as Viacom18 Motion Pictures, which is a foreign company, made it during the time of demonetisation. During a time when we were not able to get Rs 4,000, how come (Sanjay Leela) Bhansali managed to get 160 to 180 crore rupees.
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has last week granted the certification to the controversial Bhansali directorial. The approval was given after a modification of five cuts including a title change. The decision came into existence following a meeting with Joshi and a special panel comprising Arvind Singh from Udaipur, historian Chandramani Singh and Professor K.K. Singh of Jaipur University. However, Gogamedi said:Bhansali has even got a certification from Britain through (David) Headley, who is currently in jail. I want to know why Bhansali has not been jailed? Why is he not being quizzed about (his) anti-national (activities)?
Joshi on the flip side cleared out that the special panel was only for an advisory purpose.After watching 'Padmavati', Arvind Singh and K.K. Singh said this film will ignite protests. Despite that, Prasoon Joshi has given the green light to the movie. If CBFC wanted to take a decision on their own, why they did they invite people from our community? We will soon protest against this movie and will burn effigies of Smriti Irani and Prasoon Joshi.
