Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan Extend Their Support To Deepika Padukone

We have faith that we will soon obtain the requisite clearances to release the film.

Deepika Padukone has been in the eye of the storm ever since she started shooting Padmavati - an epic period drama that portrays a legendary 13th-century Hindu queen as an object of desire of Allaudin Khilji - a Mughal Emperor who invaded and ruled Delhi during the same period.

Director of "Game of Ayodhya" feels that its not only about release date clash but the plot of the film as well. Other reports claim the scene was in fact a dream sequence.

Earlier in November, the head of the Rajput Karni Sena in Rajasthan said Padukone should have her nose cut - a symbol of public humiliation - for being part of a film that allegedly insulted the famed queen. Another set was also vandalized in March, with costumes and props set alight. Veiled members of India's Rajput community listen to a speech by their leader as they gather to protest against the release of Bollywood film "Padmavati" in Mumbai, India, Monday, Nov.


Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had sought to clear the air about the alleged romance between queen Padmini and Khilji, saying he was careful in depicting the "Rajput honour and dignity" in the film.

The filmmakers released promotional material showing Queen Padmini with her Hindu husband, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. "Giving statements inciting crime not only exposes the mindset of those issuing such threats, but is also a criminal offence", said Mr. Reddy, in a direction to the DG&IGP to provide security cover. Jain said the BJP asked Pal Amu to explain his comments.

The board routinely removes sex scenes from foreign movies showed in India.

"If the movie is run, you know Prime Minister Narendra Modis Swachh Bharat campaign is going on". However, they also ban films deemed offensive to various religious groups, with the movie version of the Dan Brown novel "The Da Vinci Code" prevented from showing in Goa, which has a large Christian population.
