Padmaavat banned in Gujarat after Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh

Deepika Padukone in a still from'Padmaavat

On one hand CBFC has cleared the film with an U/A Certificate to make sure it gets a wide release and several Indian states are banning this 200 crore giant audio visual production over breakfast.

Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena Chief Raj Shekhawat and 22 supporters who had gathered near the Haji Ali to head for the CBFC office were arrested by Tardeo Police before they could proceed, a senior police official said. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer "Padmaavat" has been facing protests from various groups, particularly Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts. The state's CM Vasundhara Raje said, "Honouring the sentiments of the people of the state, the film will not be released in Rajasthan". But we want it to release as soon as possible. "But, in view of the protest calls from some quarters and the law and order in mind, a close watch is being kept on the developments", he added.

Though the doctors were initially skeptical of Williams' self-diagnosis, she was indeed correct about her condition. Little Alexis was fine after her September birth, but Williams said that "everything went bad" for her personally.

Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani told journalists that the film would not be released in the state, where it was disallowed earlier too in view of the Assembly elections. He said that the allegations were baseless as neither the film had been released, nor a trailer was out. A 200 crore film needs all the screens in this country to recover the budget and Padmaavat has the hype to fill the theaters housefull but by getting banned so frequently the film will see the loss of 40 crores to say the least in lifetime collection which cannot be a good sign for the makers. He said, "Jo kaha tha, woh hoga (What I said, will happen)". "The CM had assured the Rajput Samaj that he would ban the movie if sentiments were hurt. Now, his statement that he will abide by his commitment clearly indicates that ban on the movie will continue until there is a specific decision taken by the Centre or judiciary".
