SC’s Decision clears obstacles for Padmavati!
In a huge relief for director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition filed against the release of his movie Padmavati. Filing of the petition was the brainchild of a group seeking a stay on the release on communal sentiments. The anonymous group claims that the movie depiction is hurting sentiments of the Rajput community.
The plea had alleged that the movie wrongly depicted Rani Padmavati in the movie and distorted and twisted historical facts. While dismissing the petition, the apex court said that the Censor Board has not yet issued certificate to Padmavati. “It is an independent body and therefore SC should not intervene in their jurisdiction,” it said.
Padmavati is the biggest controversy child from the like of Sanjay Leela Bansali. The movie right from the start is stirring a lot attention and happenings. In addition to creating a widespread uproar among masses, it is shakinga few delicate political cards. Several groups have been protesting against its screening.
BJP member Arjun Gupta on Friday wrote to Home Minister Rajnath Singh a strong message. Surely urging that Sanjay Leela Bhansali should be under trail for treason for distorting history. Gupta, who is also the General Secretary of the Uttar Bharatiya Morcha, BJP, says something “disgusting” is underway in the pursuit of earning money and for boosting one’s career.
“The whole country, not just the Rajput community, is standing against it. He needs to be severely punished by being tried for treason for his attempt to distort history, so that in future any filmmaker is wary of these kind of projects,” he said.
