Padmavati row: Bollywood celebrities speak in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Padmavati protests turn violent, Karni Sena members vandalise cinema hall in Kota

Padmavati: It's a war between union government and the mob

Several film associations and celebrities have voiced support for Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Padmavati, expected to release on December 1. To the latest, the protesters have broken into the theater and destroyed the assets there.

The movie would not be allowed to release until it is pre-screened to them, the memorandum read.

About 30 people were arrested in the case. If the people protest democratically, no one will object. If the filmmakers cant get the peace with Sena, imagine the situation on the day of release! Where have we reached as a nation?

This period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan State Commission for Women (RSCW) chairperson Suman Sharma has written to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) asking for a screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati for members of the Rajput community.

Yadav said they were waiting for a complaint from the manager of the cinema hall.

However, the film fraternity is with Bhansali. "Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes lovely films and there is nothing wrong with his movies". Earlier Deepika Padukone has been into the film set before and she does not know how to deliver the dialogues to today enjoying the craft so much where she is the most peaceful and the happiest when she is in the front of the camera. "If Bhansali doesn't agree, our union won't let him shoot any film", Ram Kadam, the BJP MLA and head of Film Studio Setting and the Allied Majdoor Union, said. "It's been a pretty incredible journey", said Deepika, who says she senses a soul, heart and mind connect with the director. She says that you have to do things with the pure heart and with a pure intention. And I would love to, although at this point, I also need to heal emotionally, mentally and physically from this experience.
