Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly anticipated film ‘Padmavati’ keeps facing more roadblocks. Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha, a Brahmin organisation, is the latest to oppose the film’s release.
“As per the feelings of the general public, screening of this movie should be stopped otherwise the Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha will oppose this movie.”, said Suresh Mishra, state president of Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha, in a statement, “They (Bhansali’s team) are trying to defame Padmavati by distorting historical facts. No one can tolerate this.”, Pinkvilla reports.
The film has also been opposed by The Sri Rajput Karni Sena, an organization representing the Rajput community, for the same reasons. The organization has held several protests in past and rioted on film sets one occasion, causing a break in shooting.
‘Padmavati’ is scheduled to release on 1st December, 2017.
