CBFC rejects advisory panel member's view on Bhansali

CBFC rejects advisory panel member's view on Bhansali

Vij claimed that the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, had wrongly presented the historical facts in the movie to "defame" the image of Rani Padmavati which had hurt the sentiments of lakhs of people. Post the entire backlash, Sanjay Leela Bhansali once again came out with a clarification video saying that there is no distortion of facts and that there are no scenes having Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's characters in one frame.

The bench comprising of Chief justice Dipak Mishra, justice A.M. Khanwilkar, and D.Y Chandrachud said that the film has followed enough guidelines for the censor board to grant certification before its release.

While yesterday we had reported how the Karni Sena had issued threats to the theatre owners in Rajasthan against screening the film, today, the Home Minister of the state has assured that the release of the film will not be jeopardised.

He also said that the allegations made by some lawyers against the Chief Justice should be treated as contempt of court. Khanwilkar. "You have heard persons who are not even parties to the case for an hour".

"Due to a certain rumour and false propaganda and news, this film is being attacked and is in the midst of protests from the Rajput community". The organisations have warned that they will not let the film to be released in Thane.

The petition reads, as reported by Times Of India, "The trailer of the film shows Rani Padmavati doing a 'ghoomar' dance". The main cause is said to be an alleged dream sequence between Deepika Padukone (who play Queen Padmini) and Ranveer Singh (who essays Alauddin Khilji). Seems like the fate of the film now lies in the hands, or rather the scissors, of the Censor Board.

The minister said that the state government would approach the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), demanding a ban on the film throughout the country.

Congress amended the 1938 act that had made Armistice Day a holiday, striking the word "Armistice" in favor of "Veterans". Of course, the world wasn't free from violent German imperialism and expansionism for long.

The Bench then proceeded to observe that since the CBFC has not yet certified the film, the Court has no jurisdiction to entertain this matter as a writ petition under Article 32.

The movie, slated to release on December 1, ran into controversy over its plot, with some right wing outfits calling it an absolutely wrong portrayal of the Rajput queen.
