Just a few days back the much awaited poster of Deepika Padukone film Padmavati was out. And now it seems like Karni Sena were preparing to blow the thunder. The group that has been protesting from a longer period of time turned out to burn the posters of the movie threating to stop its release.
The Shri Rajput Karni Sena which is believed to be the organization of the Rajput community, on Saturday turned out to burn all the posters of the movie which was going to be released on the 1st of December 2017. A group of protestors gathered in front of the Rajmandir Cinema Hall shouting slogs against Sanjay Leela Bansali and burning the posters of the film.
While shooting the movie in Jaipur, Sanjay had promised to show the film to all of us and the historians before going ahead and releasing it. But since then he has not contacted any of us nor has his film been shown to us, says Narain Singh Divrala, district president Jaipur of the Shri Rajpur Karni Sena, told IANS. He also said that we want him to show the movie to the core committee of the Karni Sena and the various organizations before going ahead and releasing it. Till then we will not be allowing the movie to be released. If the committee does not have any issues with the movie then he can go ahead and release it we do not have any issues.
They also claimed that they have a bigger library and that in no books it is written that Alauddin Khilji, who is believed to be the powerful ruler of the khilji dynasty of the 13th and the 14th century fell in love with rani Padmavati and he was her lover. They are trying to defame Padmavati by distorting the historical facts which is really not acceptable says the activist of Karni Sena.
In the month of march the activist had broken the mirrors of Padmini Mahal which is located in the Chittorgarh Fort, and where Ala-ud-din Khilji is believed to to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini for the first time. Shri Rajput Karni Sena also continues to claims that the mirror was invented years after Padmavati lived and therefore the story is not true.
