Padmavati’s posters burnt by Shri Rajput Karni Sena
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film Padmavati has been mired in controversy ever since its announcement. In January, the Sena members vandalised the set of the film at Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur while the team was filming there and assaulted the renowned filmmaker. Last Saturday, a group of protesters gathered in front of Rajmandir Cinema Hall in Jaipur. They shouted slogans against Bhansali and burnt posters of the film. They accused Bhansali of manipulating the history and facts and also accused that the character of Queen Padmavati has been misinterpreted in this film. Padmavati is set to be released on December 1, 2017. Deepika Padukone is playing the role of Padmavati and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji in the historical drama. The posters of the film arrived on Thursday, and was followed by an immediate threat from the Rajput group. “It was agreed upon that the Bhansali team will screen the movie before a panel of intellectuals and historians before releasing its poster. We had asked them to screen the film in Jaipur, which did not happen. So, the posters were burnt yesterday,” Narayan Singh Devrala, district president of the Karni Sena said. Founder of the Karni Sena, Lokendra Kalvi said that around 20-25 days ago someone from the Bhansali team wanted them to see the film. He added, “But I asked him to show it to the panel of historians and intellectuals. After which we have not heard anything from them.” In March, some protestors broke the mirrors in Padmini Mahal (palace) in Chittorgarh Fort where Alauddin Khilji is believed to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini. Shri Rajput Karni Sena claims that the mirror was invented years after Padmavati lived and therefore the story is not true at all. The Karni Sena claimed that they have got a big library and that in no book it is written that Alauddin Khilji, a powerful ruler of the Khilji dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate in 13th-14th century, fell in love with Padmavati.”They are trying to defame Padmavati by distorting historical facts. It is not acceptable,” an activist of Karni Sena said. Rajasthan energy minister Pushpendra Singh had earlier this year assured a section of the Rajput community that the film will not be released in the state till it is screened to community members.
