'Padmaavat' not screened in Rajasthan amid Karni Sena shutdown

26 Janvier 2018

Even prize was announced on the heads of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone and one Rajput leader warned Deepika of chopping her nose if she didn't stop talking in support of the film.

Despite this, the Multiplex Association of India, a trade organization representing 75% of multiplex operators, advised its members in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Goa not to release the film until the situation calms down. Here's what its lead actors Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singhhave to say about Padmaavat's release.

The Karni Sena chief also said the "junta curfew" called by them has been successful as the movie was not released in many cities. "Most evening shows tomorrow look full and the weekend shows filling fast", she said. Clearly, the film will soon see great days ahead.

"I am very emotional at this point". Big day for all of us. But when you get so much of love and appreciation, it gives you lot of energy. But due to various protests the film has finally released on screens on 25 January.

The Congress spokesperson said Haryana had become the "gang rape capital" of India in the last two years. "We are humbled with the response we have received for Padmaavat. If there is freedom to express oneself in the nation and we will too express that right". "Mostly, people have found it wise to take a back seat now and give the troublesome situation a day or two and then take a decision about watching the film in cinema halls", reports Indian Express. Padmaavat was supposed to be a glorious addition to that list and that's exactly where the film is headed. It's tough to essay a role like this. This time, they are filmy!

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat has been charting in rough waters ever since the trailer release in 2017.

Talking about the film, Bhansali says, "It's been an extremely emotional and hard journey and I'm proud to present the film Padmaavat to audiences across the world". When we came to Novelty, I saw heavy security and some people in saffron turbans shouting slogans.

I am so overwhelmed with the film at this point that words fail me.
