Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat might be officially releasing in theatres on Janaury 25, 2018. But threat for the film still looms large. Despite a go ahead from CBFC, the Rajput Karni Sena, protesting the film’s release and screening, us up in arms against the decision to release the film in the country. Protests are being held in various parts of India and chief ministers of Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh have decided to not the film release in their respective states.

Uttar Pradesh, too seems to be following in the footsteps of the aforementioned three states. Reporters in the state recently met the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and asked him if Padmaavat would be allowed to be screened in the state. As per a report on news agency PTI, he replied with a, “I am not a future-teller.” Without saying much, the minister said a lot.

Without even watching the film, the easily outraged out there have been taking offence to the magnum opus’ content and has accused the filmmaker of distorting history. Interestingly, after much brouhaha, when the CBFC finally watched the film, they passed it with just five modifications and no cut. That should have been a clear message to all those protesting that their concerns about the film were uncalled for.
