Padmavati Movie Controversy: BJP Takes Sides

MUMBAI: The controversy over the film Padmavati doesn’t seem to end. People, especially Rajputana descents, gathered in protest in Rajasthan. A group of delegation reached the office of film producer-director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to warn him that there should be nothing wrong in the film.
Also, a political storm is gathering as BJP has raised questions about the film. Representatives of Rajputs wrote a letter to the Election Commission of India and the Gujarat Chief Election Commissioner, stating that the film should not be released until the elections are officially over in Gujarat. BJP spokesman and Rajput leader IK Jadeja said that BJP wants the movie either to be released after the elections or banned in Gujarat.
Jadeja said, “Kshatriya, Rajput representatives have joined us to oppose the history and manipulation of Rani Padmavati. According to history Rani Padmavati never met Alauddin Khilji. He said that if there is tampering with facts in the film, feelings of the Rajput-Kshatriya community will be hurt. He said that there will be dire consequences in terms of violence if the movie is released.
