Padmavati Row: Bhansali, Joshi Appear Before Parliamentary Panel To Discuss Film

  • Behead threats to the makers of Padmavati objectionable Nana Patekar

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij too jumped into the controversy on Tuesday and said, "I am astonished that in a democracy we need court's permission to express ourselves".

Such statements violate the principle of rule of law as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is yet to certify the film, it said, asking the board to take a decision on the certification of the movie with "utmost objectivity".

For the third time this month, the Supreme Court turned down a request to ban "Padmavati" and said, in a rebuke to Chief Ministers and others in high offices who have spoken out against the film, "those holding public offices should not comment on such issues". "Padmavati" director Sanjay Leela Bhansali said reports that the film was being released overseas were incorrect and added that he would await certification. The makers of the film will announce a revised date after clearance from the CBFC.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 submitted the new application yesterday, they said. They recently applied for 3D certification. Taking exception to Sharma's plea, the court said it was unwarranted. "If the court cannot pre-judge (a film), we are surprised how anybody else can pre-judge the film under the law", Justice Misra observed.

Many BJP politicians and Rajput groups have accused the film of hurting their sentiments by portraying a romantic dream sequence featuring legendary Rajput queen Padmavati and 14th-century Delhi sultan Alauddin Khilji. There are historians which are also divided on whether the Rani Padmini really existed.

The Panel will be chaired by Anurag Thakur and will also be hearing from CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi and officials from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. "It'll prejudice the decision-making of CBFC", the bench led by the Chief justice of India stated.

Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Bihar have already banned the film, yet to be certified by the censor board.
