With the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ finally underway, there should be a sigh of relief from all. However, many issues that have been stated about the historical facts that the film represents are still being spoken about. In particular, comments made by Bhupendra Singh, Home Minister of Madhya Pradhesh had been reported to state that the song ‘Ghoomar’, was to be banned in the state. However, he has now come forward to explain that he said no such thing.
“My statement was misconstrued by the media. I was saying that nobody should take law in their hands even if they have objections about any song. I never meant to say that as the state government has banned ‘Padmaavat’ the song should not be played.” Bollywood Life reported the Minister explaining.
He went on to add, “Playing of the song is an individual’s choice and nothing can be done in that regard. If someone has an objection about anything, the issue should be reported to the authorities concerned. Nobody is allowed to take law in their hands.”
Though the film has been cleared by the Central Board of Certification, ‘Padmaavat’ is still causing a stir. Apparently, the Rajput Karni Sena is not showing any signs of backing down from ensuring that the film doesn’t get the exposure that it needs.
Despite their efforts, however, it seems the masses are longed to see the magic of Bhansali and how he brings Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor together.
