Ever since the news was released that the movie Padmavati would be exploring a fictional love angle between the legendary Queen of Chittor and Alauddin Khilji, a massive protest rose against the release of the movie. The protests, led by Karni Sena, have reached epic proportions, one of the protestors offering Rs 10 crore as a bounty for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s head. In response to all the opposition that the movie is seeing, the filmmakers have ‘voluntarily’ decided to postpone the release date of the movie, but even that is not satiable to the protestors who are asking for a complete ban on the movie.

Padmavati Controversy

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has cleared the air around the controversies on numerous occasions but it has been a pointless effort since the protestors are not ready to listen. In the wake of all this struggle, Bollywood has come out of its slumber in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Padmavati. Filmmaker Hansal Mehta, in a series of tweets blamed the incident on the upcoming Gujarat Assembly elections and the government. “Sad that the bullies have prevailed again…” he tweeted.

The stars of Bollywood have a point when they say that the goons that are protesting against the movie are doing so without watching even a single frame of the movie and their prejudice is totally baseless. The allegations against Padmavati and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are that the movie distorts historical facts and demeans the reputation of the legendary Queen Padmavati. Other members of the industry have also come forward to support Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his time of need.

Gauri Shinde tweeted that the groups that are protesting are just a minority and they would not be able to stop the moviemakers from bringing the movie to the public and majority of the population would side with sanity and law and order.

Twinkle Khanna joked that the nation wishes to know if the bounty of Rs 10 crore is inclusive of the GST.

Anurag Kashyap had a question about whether people in India get arrested for making threats to behead someone.
