Karni Sena urge United Kingdom "brothers" to burn down cinemas showing 'Padmavati'

The film, starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Maharana Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, was initially slated to release on December 01. "On the contrary, I can say that all Rajputs will feel utmost pride in seeing the entire film that has been made after exhaustive research by Bhansali".

Singh, however, said Padmavati "totally distorted" the queen's portrayal.

According to Kalvi, Bhansali is a "regular offender" when it comes to "distorting" history in cinema, and that he does not have any faith in the director's word that there are no intimate scenes between Allauddin Khilji and Padmavati in the film, stated a report by The Indian Express.

Meanwhile, the Rajput Samaj, a UK-based group, also opposed the film's clearance.

Mumbai: After news broke that the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has certified Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati" and cleared it for release in the United Kingdom, the Karni Sena has come forward to issue further threats, claiming that they'd burn down any theatre that screens the film, even if it's in the UK. In the last few days, three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled states-Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat-have decided not to screen the film in their respective territories.

The protests against the film are set to intensify in India.

"Padmavati", which is yet to be cleared by the Indian film certification board, is ready for release in the UK.

BBFC cleared the movie "Padmavati" without any cuts for release in the UK.

The Rajput Karni Sena had even called for a Bharat Bandh on December 1 to protest against the controversial film over what it calls "blatant distortion of facts" by its makers. After those two incidents, protests against the film nearly went silent. "But tampering with historical facts and defaming Rajput glory is something that can not be ignored", said Kalvi.

In recent times, several political leaders and goons of right-wing groups have announced death threats against Deepika and Bhansali.
