  • 'Padmavati' distorts history, will not release in MP: Chouhan

The film has been mired in controversy over conjectures that it "distorts history" regarding Rajput queen Padmavati, a contention that Bhansali has repeatedly denied.

Padukone plays Padmini, the legendary queen who committed "jauhar", the medieval Rajput practice in which female royals walked into funeral fires to embrace death over the dishonour of being taken captive.

Security for Padukone, one of India's biggest movie stars, was increased earlier in November, Mumbai's joint commissioner of police Deven Bharti told CNN.

After months of intimidation and protests, the producers of the movie, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, issued a statement Sunday announcing its December 1 release date had been "voluntarily deferred", sparking concerns over issues relating to freedom of speech in the world's largest democracy, according to CNN.

The deferment hasn't ended the controversy, however.

The film, starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Ratan Singh, is yet to receive a clearance from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

Chief Ministers of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh - all BJP ruled states - and Punjab, ruled by the Congress, have already opposed the release of the movie.

The story of the Queen comes from a 16-century poem. "Modi-Ji (Prime Minister) you have to speak".

The story is about seeking God, added Kumar, Padmavati stands for perfection and the other characters represent good and evil.

The director was also roughed up by members of a fringe group in Jaipur and the film's sets were also vandalised during shooting in Kolhapur. He also urged "cerebral India" to wake up.

This Haryana BJP Leader Suraj Pal Amu has announced Rs 10 Crore for Beheading the heads of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone, the director and lead actress of the film Padmavati. The allegations were made against his film even before watching it, similar to the Padmavati row.
