Contempt petition in SC against Karni Sena

Share

The Haryana police on Wednesday arrested a total of 31 Karni Sena supporters in connection with the protests against controversial Bollywood movie "Padmaavat" under different sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including an attempt to murder.

The Chittorgarh unit of the Rajput Karni Sena announced on Thursday that it would release a film on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's mother, titled Leela ki Leela.

Trade analyst Atul Mohan said last minute decisions of theatres about not screening the film can affect the movie's collections.

A state-run bus was torched near Bhondsi village on that day. Padmaavat features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles. However, the release of the film was not smooth enough as there were reports of some cinema halls - one in Gurugram and two in Mumbai - cancelling their shows fearing violent protests.

Gurgaon police have also arrested 18 people for the bus attack and allied acts of vandalism but not named the Sena in the FIR, PTI said.

Historians, however, are divided on whether Rajput queen Padmavati existed. But the protesters still rampaged through, forcing residents to initially avoid theatres. "The feedback for the film has been overwhelming", the spokesperson of the production house said. Satpal Tanwar, who runs NGO Nigahen in Gurugram's Khandsa area, said he had uploaded a video on Facebook on Monday, urging anti-Padmaavat protesters to abstain from violence.

Asked about the protests against the movie in various states by Karni Sena members, Kalvi said, "These are not communal".

Inspite of the makers telling the Karni Sena that there was no sequence of any sort between Padmavati and Khilji, the members of the group did not stop.

"There was not a single dream sequence in the film so I don't know what the fuss is all about". In Varanasi, security personnel have been deployed outside all the cinema halls and there was no incident of any protest. Her fans have gotten a new reason to celebrate as she comes back on celluloid after nearly a year, with her last outing being xXX: "Return of Xander Cage", says an insider.
