BJP to ask poll panel, Censor to stay release of Padmavati

Padmavati second song Ranveer Singh to stun audience with Khalli Balli act

The letter comes on the heels of upcoming Assembly elections in Gujarat to be held on December 9 and and December 14. "The Election Commission should arrange for pre-release screening of the movie for select Kshatriya representatives to provide them a fair opportunity to prevent unnecessary tension ahead of Gujarat polls", Jadeja told reporters, adding a representation has been made to the poll panel to not allow the release of the film before that. The protesters have urged the Election Commission (EC) to ban the film in Gujarat or shift the release date of the film post the elections. Bhansali has faced protest against the film not just in form of set destruction but was also slapped on the set of the film.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali' flick Padmavati starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, will be released on December 1st. According to the BJP, Padmavati may hurt the sentiments of the Kshatriya community. If that doesn't happen, Karni Sena has threatened to burn cinema halls and former Congress leader, Shankersinh Vaghela has also warned the makers of violent protests.

"The BJP also condemns the heinous attempt to link queen Padmavati of the Rajput (Kshatriya) community - the contribution of which in the history of this country has been huge - with Alauddin Khilji in the film", he said. Although Bhansali and his team have confirmed multiple times that no such romantic angle has been portrayed in the film, the controversy remains.

Sixers decline Jahlil Okafor's fourth-year option
The Celtics might want Okafor only after a buyout - i.e., if they don't have to surrender any assets to Philadelphia . But, if the Stevens can get him to commit on the defensive end, it could definitely strengthen Boston's front court.

Deepika Padukone who plays queen Padmavati spoke with the media at the 3D trailer launch of the film in Mumbai recently and said, "Nothing, and no one can stop this film", hinting that the film will be released as scheduled. They had reached an agreement with Bhansali productions about Padmavati not being projected contrary her dignity.

Senior Congress leader and also a chief ministerial hopeful, Shaktisinh Gohil echoed views that were strikingly similar to his political rival though he did seek to put the BJP in a spot too.

Earlier, Jai Rajputana along with Karni Sena workers had vandalised the film's set in Jaipur and even attacked the crew.
