Now, Gujarat too bans release of 'Padmaavat'

Now, Gujarat too bans release of 'Padmaavat'

The Shri Rajput Karni Sena also demanded changes in the names of the characters days after the CBFC suggested changing the film's title to Padmavat, after Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem of the same name on which it is based.

The film's screenings have already been banned in the neighbouring states like Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Padmaavat has faced a major backlash from fringe groups in the recent time as the independent organisation claims that the film showcases untruthful facts and distorted historical events.

He was not on the same page, however, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who rejected the idea just before Christmas. The president said overhauling social safety net programs is "going to have to be bipartisan".

"Padmaavat" will be releasing the same day as Akshay Kumar's "PadMan".

Hearing a petition filed by the director of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, seeking the quashing of an FIR lodged against him at Didwana in Merta in March past year, the court posted the matter to January 23.

Lake County flu clinic rescheduled due to weather
Flu season is raging across the country, and clinics are filling up with people suffering from fevers, chills, and other symptoms. Individuals who are not in high risk groups and who have mild illness typically do not need medical care or antiviral drugs.

Meanwhile, the governments of Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh said the film will not be released in their states. The state's CM Vasundhara Raje said, "Honouring the sentiments of the people of the state, the film will not be released in Rajasthan". Even if no other state prohibits the film's release, the ban in just these four states is expected to affect the box-office collections of the Rs 150 crore magnum opus. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, on Friday, said that Padmaavat will not release in Gujarat. He said, "Jo kaha tha, woh hoga (What I said, will happen)".

An official of the CM secretariat confirmed the news of ban stating, "The CM had assured the Rajput Samaj that he would ban the movie if sentiments were hurt".

The period romance featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles was earlier scheduled to be released on December 1.
