Padmavati Controversy — Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Movie Postpone to 2018
The biggest news has hit the channels all over and one more to add to Padmavati Controversy. Today morning a dead body is seen hanging at Jaipur’s famous Nahargarh Fort. The shocking thing was, a stone was scribble saying “Padmavati Ka Virodh” (Against Padmavati Movie) and a graffiti including “We don’t burn effigies, we hang them.” The man has been identified as Chetan Saini , a local jeweler, and the investigation is still going on. There is no clear sign of suicide or murder.
The delay of the blockbuster movie which is expected to make unexpected profit at the Box Office, is now delayed to 2018. This would not only effect Sanjay Bhansali’s movie but the movies to be released in the coming year. The movie is always in the controversy, be the Rajput Groups, Ranveer visiting Psychiatrist or Rani Padmini dancing on Goomer song. The Schedule date of December 1, 2017 was postponed by the Censor Board by rejecting its application to be Certified.
The Rajput Group are the ones who have objected the movie continuously effecting the political condition too. To make sure there is no romance sequel between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati, the Rajput Groups are asking for advance screening. The only motive is to make sure the movie does not effect the History of India and their culture. Also their concern is, Rani Padmavati was a pure soul and committed Jauhar. She was no where involved with the Sultan and in fact she tried to escape Alauddin Khilji’s rule on Chittor by taking Jauhar.
THE ANGRY PROTESTERS
The Karni Sena’s angry protesters are on roads saying movie Padmavati is destroying the Indian Culture. Although, the Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has refused and made clear about the movie having No love scenes between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmini. The Karni Sena have threatened the Director as well as Deepika Padukone for the movie. Both have a tight security for their protection. Earlier, the Karni Sena had also vandalised the sets of the movie. There yet many BJP ruled state which have Banned movie Padmavati in their states. Padmavati controversy has become a political issue than a just a movie.
The other upcoming movies like Kapil Sharma’s “Firangi” and Sunny Leone’s “Tera Intezaar” may not be able to satisfy the audience this month. Manoj Desai, Executive Director of Mumbai Mutiple Gaity Galaxy said, “People have only seen the songs and promos of the film, the film is made on a budget of around Rs. 190 crore and due to its release date being postponed, the makers will face a loss of more than 200 crore.”
