Padmavathi can be credited as the ‘most’ controversial film of the year. After facing a severe backlash from Karni Sena in the north-west and BJP leaders in the north, the film is facing even from the south. The ‘Viswa Hindu Parishath’ of Chennai called for a ban on the release of the film in Tamil Nadu. The protesters from the organization warned that they would be staging protests in front of the theatres if the film is released.
Sivalingam, President of the ‘Viswa Hindu Parishath’ Organization, Kovai and Subh Dev Gill, President of All India Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena have released a joint statement together.
The film has been receiving severe backlash right from the day of the shooting. Many organizations, notably Karni Sena has been alleging that the film depicts Rajputs as inferior to Sultans. They also apparently stated that the characterization of Chittor Princess, Rani Padmini in the film is likely to hurt the sentiments of the people.
Karni Sena has already planned for huge protests in the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan by the time of the release of the film. Many trade analysts are predicting that it would be a very tough time for the film’s unit to release the film successfully.
