EC to BJP: Padmavati's Release Will Not be Stalled

Kevin Kolsch Dennis Widmyer

The Rajput outfits allege that Queen Padmini and the Rajput community has been shown in a negative light in the film, but Bhansali has outrightly rejected such charges as baseless. "An attempt has been made to wrongly link the two characters (Padmavati and Khilji) of history", said Jadeja. "The Election Commission should arrange for pre-release screening of the movie for select Kshatriya representatives to provide them a fair opportunity to prevent unnecessary tension ahead of Gujarat polls", Jadeja told reporters, adding a representation has been made to the poll panel to not allow the release of the film before that.

Senior Congress leader and also a chief ministerial hopeful, Shaktisinh Gohil echoed views that were strikingly similar to his political rival though he did seek to put the BJP in a spot too.

The Karni Sena members had earlier ransacked shooting sets and had assaulted Bhansali and his crew.

Shri Rajput Karni Sena claims that mirror was invented years after this incident is claimed to have happened so it is a completely untrue and false story.

Padmavati is slated to release on the 1 of December while the Gujarat elections are supposed to take place on the 9 and the 14 of the same month. It is an issue of violation of dignity of women of these communities. "There may be damage and destruction to the property as well", mentioned the letter.

Megan colligan, the paramount pictures president in worldwide distribution and marketing said; "Padmavati has all the makings of a hit film and we are excited to bring Sanjay's incredible vision to audiences across the global market place".

Last week, Vaghela had warned of violence if the movie was released. The sets of the film, Padmavati were vandalised on a couple of occasions and Bhansali was even assaulted by a member of a Rajput organisation who believed that the filmmaker was distorting history by misrepresenting facts. On October 15, a "rangoli" created by a local artist Rahul Raj Mall after 48 hours of painstaking effort in Umra area of Surat was vandalized by a group. "It is not acceptable", an activist of Karni Sena said.
