Rajput Samaj of United Kingdom launches boycott of 'Padmavati'

Bounty offered for beheadings of Bollywood actress, director over controversial film

The latest plot development in the saga of stalled film Padmavati is that it's been passed by the United Kingdom censor but will not release there on December 1 because the producers have chose to wait for clearance at home.

Sharma also alleged that grave damage will be done to social harmony if the movie was allowed to be released outside India. The chief minister of the state, Vijay Rupani, on Wednesday, stated that the home department of the state had chose to ban the film to avoid breakdown of law and order in the state which is headed for an election.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film was given a 12A rating by the BBFC which passed it for audiences in the United Kingdom without any cuts.

Mumbai/London: Padmavati has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) without any cuts, but the producers say they are not planning to release the film without the Indian censor board's go-ahead, sources said on Thursday.

Trump Tagged again DPRK as Terrorist Country
President Donald Trump has announced the USA is putting North Korea's "murderous regime" on America's terrorism blacklist. Neither Mr Trump nor the State Department specified which acts of terrorism and assassination the North had supported.

Padmavati has been in trouble since the beginning of the year, with fringe groups in the western state of Rajasthan attacking the film's set, threatening to burn down cinemas that show it and even physically attacking Bhansali. "There should be a strict action against those persons who are issuing threats to Deepika Padukone", Sena said in the statement. However, Bhansali said in an appeal that there was no dream sequence and it was all a rumour.

In the letter to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani last week, Raje had suggested that a committee of historians, film experts and members from the Rajput community be formed to look into the film's subject and necessary changes be made to it so that it does not hurt the sentiments of any community.

Asked whether this announcement by the Chief Minister of banning the film amounted to violation of the model code of conduct which is in effect in the state, state chief electoral officer B.B. Swain said: "I don't know. This is what I want to say", Shraddha told reporters here. "So, this is distortion of history and no one will accept it". No one involved in the banning of the movie has watched the movie yet, but they're acting on the song released, Ghoomar, and the rumors of the vulgarization of Queen Padmavati.
