From the destruction of the movie set to BJP members seeking a ban on the film, the Supreme Court of India finally rejected all pleas of banning the movie on November 11.The apex court, however, feels it can not intervene in this topic since the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is yet to provide the certification of the movie Padmavati. The outfit has also threatened to hold demonstrations outside the cinema halls if the film is allowed to release.
During the shooting of the film, there were rumours that there will be a dream sequence between Khilji and Rani Padmavati in the film.
Even Karni Sena, a political unit opposing the film's release, has said that its members will hold a march on November 20.
In Lucknow, a division bench of the Allahabad High Court asked a petitioner, seeking a ban on the movie Padmavati on the ground that it allegedly propagates the practice of "Sati", to approach the Censor Board with his plea. Padmavati, the queen of Mewar, and several Rajput women had sacrificed their lives by committing "jauhar" (sati), the plea said, adding that the movie distorted historical truths, "hurting the sentiments of Kshatriya community".
The Bench then proceeded to observe that since the CBFC has not yet certified the film, the Court has no jurisdiction to entertain this matter as a writ petition under Article 32.
People, particularly Rajput community in Rajasthan, are protesting against the release of the movie alleging that it portrays Queen Padmavati in a very derogatory manner.
