BJP to hurdle release of Ranveer, Deepika's 'Padmavati'

Mumbai : Bad news for all those people who are eagerly waiting for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' in theatres; it has been learned that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be writing to Election Commission and Censor to temporarily hold release of the movie.

BJP alleged that 'Padmavati' shows a controversial twist in history and wrongly links queen Padmavati with aggressive ruler Alauddin Khilji. 

"We are writing to the ECI, CBFC and the Centre, seeking to stop the film’s release for a temporary period till the issue is resolved," BJP spokesperson IK Jadeja said on Wednesday.

The party also denied any links of these allegations with the upcoming elections and said they are only concerned that an attempt was made to distort the history and heritage of a state.

“An attempt has been made to wrongly link the two characters (Padmavati and Khilji) of history,” said Jadeja.
