  • 'Padmavati' row: Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prasoon Joshi to meet parliamentary panel

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus, Padmavati has become the bone of contention for Rajput fringe outfits and many political leaders.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali will meet Parliamentary Panel today related to his upcoming Indian period drama movie titled "Padmavati". "When the matter is pending before the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for grant of certificate, nobody holding a responsible position should comment as it would amount to the violation of the principle of the rule of law".

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said, "We are governed by the rule of law".

After innumerable protests, vandalism and threats against the movie, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and leading lady Deepika Padukone, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar has chosen to ban the movie from his ruling state.

Sources in the Railway Ministry hinted that assessment by officials placed the blame on rail fracture leading to the accident. In August-September alone, the frequency of derailments was one derailment every three days .

Top Union ministers too have said Bhansali should consult with opponents of the film and historians to arrive at a version that is acceptable to them all. "So long as controversy about the film does not subside, the film would not be released in Bihar". Among the questions, it is rumored that the panel will also be sharing opinions about movies based on historic figures and the extent to which a director or creator can be allowed to go to make his/her vision possible without hurting the sentiments of religious groups. A formal decision on the second application has been cleared yet by the board yet. "We will restart our plan (the release date) once we get the censor certificate", a source close to the producers said.

Taking exception to some portions of Sharma's petition, the court said it was "unwarranted and scurrilous".

The court's remarks adopt implication with the chief ministers of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh banning the film.

The film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead.
