Rajput outfits, particularly Karni Sena, have given a bandh call in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati.
The Karni Sena members had earlier ransacked shooting sets and had assaulted Bhansali and his crew. The Rajput outfits allege that Queen Padmini and the Rajput community has been shown in a negative light in the film, but Bhansali has outrightly rejected such charges as baseless.
The film will hit the theatres on December 1, and presently dubbing work is in progress. The Rajput outfits have demanded that the film be shown to them, but the producers say that the film is still not ready.
The question is: unless somebody has seen the film in its entirety, how can a charge of distorting history be made? It would be better if the matter is resolved through negotiations and the controversy should be put to rest.
