Bhansali assures Rajput groups that there won't be any romantic dream sequence, outfits now demand title change
It was raised at a joint press meet convened by Rajput Sabha and Karni Sena where they said they agree over the demand that there will not be any distortion of historical facts in the movie
Protests over "Padmavati" rose to new levels as Rajput outfits came out on Monday with fresh demands including a title change and a preview before the release date even as the Bhansali productions clarified that there is no romantic dream sequence between Ran Padmavati and Alaudin Khilji.
It was raised at a joint press meet convened by Rajput Sabha and Karni Sena where they said they agree over the demand that there will not be any distortion of historical facts in the movie.
The president of the Rajput Sabha also said that they have also raised for a screening committee be formed by the group to screen the movie before its release but the production house is yet to give an answer.
Some members of the Karni Sena demanded during the press conference to change the title of the film which was supported by state President of Karni Sena Mahipal Singh.
“There is no romantic dream sequence or any objectionable/ romantic scene between Rani Padmavati and Allauddin Khijli. It was not a part of the script. It was misconception and considering the sentiments of the community, we have clarified to them,” Shobha Sant, CEO of the Bhansali Productions said.
“We are trying to present Rani Padmavati’s courageous nature. We will make the film which will make the country proud on Rani Padmavati,” she added.
Mahipal said he was putting forward the demand of the youths of the Rajput community by asking for a name change.
“We are thankful to the Bhansali productions that they have agreed to our demand that there will be no distortion of the historic facts in the movie,” he said.
Sant, however, denied discussing anything about a title change in their previous meetings with the group.
“They have made this fresh demand for which I have nothing to say anything. This is not in my jurisdiction. They also did not raise this point in our discussion held before,” she said.
Karni Sena activists on Friday vandalised the shooting location of "Padmavati" in Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur and manhandled the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
