Deepika will be banned in Shiv-raj!



New Delhi, Jan13: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday indicated that the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Padmavat will not be allowed to be released in the State.

The film is likely to release on January 25.

Asked if the film would be banned in Madhya Pradesh, Chouhan told reporters, “Jo Kaha tha, wo hoga (What I said, will happen).”

However, he did not clarify.

Mr. Chouhan was talking to reporters after attending a state-level mass ‘Surya Namaskar and Pranayam’ event organised to mark the birth anniversary of spiritual leader Swami Vivekananda.

The film has received a clearance from the Central Board for Film Certification after the change of title and some script modifications.

While speaking to some members of the Rajput community on November 20 last year, Mr. Chouhan had made it clear that the film would not be allowed to release in the state if it contains scenes “breaching the honour” of the Rajput queen Padmavati or features “distorted facts”.

“We will not tolerate any distortion of historical facts. The entire country is speaking in one voice that historical facts were distorted (in the movie),” he had said.

The film has been mired in controversy after some Rajput groups opposed it.

The period romance featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles was earlier scheduled to be released on December 1.
