Release of 'Padmavati' in United Kingdom is totally illegal: CBFC

Bounty offered for beheadings of Bollywood actress, director over controversial film

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear on November 28 a fresh petition for a direction to the producers of film Padmavati not to release it in the United Kingdom or in any other country outside India on December 1.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, which is yet to announce a new release date for Indian viewers, has apparently kept its promise with the British audience as the film will, reportedly, release in United Kingdom on December 1.

When asked whether he had seen the controversial movie or not, he said that it was not required.

Though the decision of the British censors may appear like a moment of triumph for the beleaguered cast and crew of the film which has been facing abuse, threats of violence and even death in India, the approval for screening has also left the filmmakers of Padmavati in a piquant situation. "There should be a strict action against those persons who are issuing threats to Deepika Padukone", Sena said in the statement.

Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had held that the film had "distorted facts" about Rajput queen Padmavati and would not be allowed to be released in his state, even if it gets censor board certification. Actor Ranveer Singh, who plays Alauddin Khilji in the flick, said he was "200 per cent with the film".

After MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan chose to ban the film in the state on Monday, former controversial chairperson of the CBFC, Pahlaj Nihalani, said that a movie can not be banned in a state before receiving a certification from the Censor Board, as the CBFC is popularly known as. However, Bhansali said in an appeal that there was no dream sequence and it was all a rumour.

"I have clarified it earlier and doing it again through this video that there is no such in the film which will hurt anyone's sentiments and sensibilities", the filmmaker added.

Striking a different note, Mr. Adityanath told reporters: "Nobody has the right to take the law into his or her own hands". No one involved in the banning of the movie has watched the movie yet, but they're acting on the song released, Ghoomar, and the rumors of the vulgarization of Queen Padmavati.
