Supreme Court shocks BJP-ruling states over ‘Padmavat’ release!

Many Indian filmmakers have been complaining about the lack of freedom, in making films of their choice in India. Though we live in a secular nation, the secularism is only restricted to political speeches and election promises. In India, a film has to go through communal and religious scrutiny even before it is released. The upcoming Bollywood movie ‘Padmavat (previously Padmavathi) starring Deepika Padukone has been facing a similar situation.

The movie is helmed and produced by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Even before the film’s release, various BJP-ruled state governments have announced a ban on the film. After Sanjay Leela Bhansali moved the Supreme Court, the apex court permitted the filmmaker to release the movie across the nation.

The Chief Justice of India asked the questioned (BJP) state governments to explain why they are against the release of the film in their states. ‘I’m really shocked at those state government’s attitudes. When the CBFC itself has given a U/A, what is the problem with these governments?’

During the shooting of the film, Karni Sena and other religious organizations indulged in vandalizing the movie sets, furniture and other valuables. This has incurred great loses to the producer. The film is slated to release on 25th January 2018 nation-wide.
