Gujarat polls: BJP asks for 'Padmavati's pre-screening for Rajput reps

04 November 2017

The party has written to the Election Commission of India as well as the Chief Electoral Officer, Gujarat "to arrange for a pre-release viewing of the film by select Rajput representatives to alleviate their raised tempers and provide fair opportunity to prevent unnecessary tension ahead of polls".

Jadeja said the party had received several representations from the Kshatriya community about distortion of historical facts in the film.

Starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as her husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh, a Rajput King, and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji, Padmavati is scheduled to hit cinemas on December 1, this year.

Jahlil Okafor's time is running out in Philadelphia . "Let him go play somewhere because I'm 21". That's why the guys have been out there on social media, but I've just kind of been in the dark.

BJP spokesman and Kshatriya leader I K Jadeja said that BJP would prefer that "Padmavati" movie is either banned or its release postponed in poll-bound Gujarat.

"The BJP also condemns the heinous attempt to link queen Padmavati of the Rajput (Kshatriya) community - the contribution of which in the history of this country has been huge - with Alauddin Khilji in the film", he said. "We demand that if there has been the distortion of history as claimed, the movie should not be released at all", Gohil added.

The protestors led by the founder patron of the Rajput Karni Sena, Lokendra Singh Kalvi burnt the effigy of Bhansali and gave a memorandum to the collector demanding that the film not be released.

Digiorno Trolls Papa John's For Crying About NFL Anthem Protests Hurting Sales
At a league meeting last month, Goodell and the NFL owners opted not to force players to stand during the Anthem. And Papa John's said it expects this trend to continue into the next quarter.

The movie is co-produced by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's banner named Bhansali productions and Viacom 18 motion pictures. It is an issue of violation of dignity of women of these communities. We do not trust Bhansali and he has not honoured the agreement he made with us. "If the movie is released without pre-screening, Gujarat will witness violent protests and law and order may go out of control", Vaghela had warned.

Rajput outfits, particularly Karni Sena, have given a bandh call in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati.

In October, a group of people even destroyed a huge Padmavati-inspired rangoli made by a Surat artist on the occasion of Diwali.
