‘Padmavat’ Will Not Be Released in Rajasthan: CM Vasundhara Raje
Meanwhile, all mentions of Delhi, Chittorgarh and Mewar are being removed from the film.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has said Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat won't be released in her state.
In a media release, Raje said Rani Padmini's martyrdom and sacrifice were an honour for everyone.
She said Padmini was more than just history, and that she’d asked her Home Minister, Gulab Chand Kataria, to take steps to prevent the release of Padmavat in Rajasthan.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much-awaited movie is all set to open in theatres across India on January 25.
Meanwhile, according to a report by Mumbai Mirror, all mentions of Delhi, Chittorgarh and Mewar are being removed from the Deepika Padukone-Shahid Kapoor-Ranveer Singh-starrer. Where Alauddin Khilji came from and where the battle was fought between the kings, would remain confined to the imagination.
