The Supreme Court has given a big decision in the favor of the film Padmaavat. The court ordered that the film will release in all states on January 25 and suspended the ban orders by four states.
Well, this didn’t go well down with Rajput Karni Sena and they gave a call for a Janata Curfew and asked the public to avoid watching the film.
“I don’t wish to call for a bandh protesting the movie’s release on January 25 or on January 26 (Republic Day). I ask people to enforce a Janata Curfew. People should desist from watching the movie,” Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh said.
The Karni Sena chief refused to comment on Supreme Court decision and said “We are considering (strategies in view of) the changed situation after the SC order. But can any film hall screen the movie against the wishes of the state government.”
“I will trust a black dog, but not Bhansali. He himself does not know what movie he wishes to make. History or based on history or fiction. “He has obtained different certifications from the British Censor Board and Indian Censor board; he gives a different information to the Parliament.” Kalvi added.
The political group now plans on meeting the Prime Minister to implement the ban on Padmaavat again. “Central cabinet has the right to prevent the screening of a movie by overriding censor board recommendations under Section 6(1) (2) of the Cinematography Act. The SC also gives this power to under the Act to the central government to ban the movie in exceptional circumstances is this not an exceptional circumstance.”
