Padmaavat protests: Supreme Court to hear plea by Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh today

Padmaavat protests: Supreme Court to hear plea by Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh today

The apex court also restrained other states from issuing any such notification or order banning the screening of the movie.

The governments of Rajasthan and Madya Pradesh have filed petitions in the Supreme Court asking to reexamine the decision of allowing the release.

Meanwhile, the movie's producer Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is considering postponing the movie's release in Rajasthan because the protests in the state may turn violent, the Economic Times reported.

The Supreme Court has all but read the riot act to States taking shelter behind the imperatives of maintaining law and order. "If someone decides to not screen the film, it will be good, but if someone screens the film, they will be provided security", Khattar told reporters.

The CBFC suggested the makers of the film to change the title to "Padmavat". The organization of the Rajput community had further staged blockades by burning tyres on the road connecting Ujjain to Nagad, Dewas to Maksi and Agra to Kota. On Sunday, thousands of women brandishing swords took out a "Chetavani Rally" (warning march) in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh town, demanding a ban on the film and threatening to do self-immolation (jauhar) if the authorities fail to stop its release.

Since this exploit relies on automatic link previews, typical security advice - don't click on random links - doesn't apply. He said he'd reported the bug to Apple the previous day, he told BuzzFeed , but had not heard anything from the company.

The apex court had, on January 18, 2018, paved way for the nationwide release of the movie on January 25 by lifting the ban put by states like Gujarat and Rajasthan on its screening.

However, he warned, in case cinema halls screened the movie, they will be responsible for the consequences.

Protesters claim the film falsely depicts a romance between 14th-century Hindu queen Padmavati and Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji. The movie was slated to hit the theatres by December, 2017, but due to strong opposition from Rajput groups, the release date was postponed.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the director of the film.
