'Padman' makes way for 'Padmaavat', to release on Feb 9

Breaking News: PadMan Postponed For Padmaavat

The period drama faced nationwide protests, spearheaded by Rajput outfit Karni Sena.

In a report of Zoom, the people from the village of Amethi, Uttar Pradesh demanded a share from the films' earnings so that the works related to the restoration of the birthplace and research institute of the poet can be carried out. For the uninitiated, Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles.

Deepika Padukone who is looking forward for the release of her upcoming film Padmaavat, was snapped at the airport as she returned from Paris on January 21, 2018.

Earlier, the Rajasthan government and some other BJP-ruled states had said they wouldn't allow the film to be screened in their states.

Padmaavat was originally scheduled to be released as Padmavati on 1 December, but the film was mired in controversies following violent protests from the right-wing Hindu brigade. Deepika and Ranveer's co-star Shahid Kapoor also attended the screening with his family - wife Mira Rajput, brother Ishaan Khatter and mother Neelima Azeem. "Bandit Queen" had passed the test of the Supreme Court", the CJI said. The Indian censor board too had refused to issue a certificate to the film forcing the maekrs to postpone its release.

"Please try to understand". Deepak Sinbal, owner of Rambha cinema hall, was the only cinema hall owner to say "yes" to release the film in his theatre. Viacom 18 representatives called the Vile Parle police, alleging that the Karni Sena was trying to blackmail and intimidate them.

Reacting to the apex court order, Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said the state government would study it and then take a decision on any legal challenge. Joint commissioner Deven Bharti relayed the dedication to security, stating, "We are prepared to maintain law and order across the city". Sanjay Leela Bhansali worked as assistant editor to the team of Bharat Ek Khoj.

"Most theatres have declined to screen the film, despite the green signal from the Supreme Court". Already, there have been protests and riots in the places like Gurugram, Ahmedabad and Pune.
