Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat, which released in India on January 25, has already made its way into online piracy. A Facebook page just added to the woes of the filmmaker by leaking the entire film online. While the several cities are burning with the outrage of fringe group Rajput Karni Sena, a Facebook page has gone ahead and leaked the entire film on social media.
The Facebook page which goes by the name ‘Jaaton Ka Adda’ went live from inside the theatre when the Padmaavat was being screened. More than 15,000 people already shared the link on their profiles. And more than 3.5 lakh views.
Padmaavat features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles. It also had Raza Murad, Jim Sarbh and Aditi Rao Hydari in important roles. After the special screening of the film, the celebrities as well the audience couldn’t stop praising Ranveer Singh’s monstrous performance as Alauddin Khilji.
Film Padmaavat was earlier titled Padmavati, but after the suggestion of few historians and CBFC, the title was changed. The film was releasing after fighting a long and troublesome war with fringe group Rajput Karni Sena and CBFC. Six Indian states even banned the film and only allowed screening after Supreme Court intervened into the matter.
A petition has also been filed in the Supreme Court seeking action against Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Haryana for disobeying the court orders on Padmaavat. The court has earlier asked the states to release the movie and also to ensure law and order in the state ahead of its release. Another petition has been filed to seek legal action against the Rajput Karni Sena.
