Rajput Community, Vishva Hindu Parishad, Bajarang Dal and Karni Sena held a joint protest against Padmavati film in Surat.

While at least 15 members of Akhand Rajputana Seva Sangh detained in Maharashtra while they were protesting against Padmavati film.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures has produced “Padmavati” with Bhansali Productions, and it will distribute the film in India.

The movie is embroiled in a controversy as some Hindu groups and political parties, including the Congress and the BJP, claim that the film distorts history and wrongly portrays Rajput queen Padmavati, a contention Bhansali has repeatedly rebuffed.

One BJP member has demanded that Bhansali be “tried for treason” and that CBFC should not certify the movie, while some want the movie’s release date to be delayed in view of the Gujarat elections, and then there are others who feel the movie must be shown to historians before it is given wings to fly.
