Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmaavat is in a lot of headlines. Finally, the doors to the screening of film Padmaavat in Jodhpur, Rajasthan have been opened through Rajasthan High Court. However, this is not available to general public. Satyam cinema hall in Jodhpur will showcase movie to High Court Justice Sandeep Mehta and some other judicial officers on February 5. There is a public curfew over film Padmaavat in Jodhpur city but this will be going to end on the order of the Rajasthan High Court.
Karani Sena is protesting against the scenes of Khilji and Queen Padmaavati in the film. There were violent demonstrations in many states against movie Padmaavat. In protest against the Karni Sena and Rajput organizations, Padmaavat received a green signal from the Supreme Court and the censor board. The film was released on January 25, 2018, in cinemas across the country except in Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan and Goa, where the film was not released.
But due to protests and violent demonstrations, theater owners in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana had decided not to show it to them.
Why Special Screening of the movie For Group of Judges of High Court?
In Deedwana police station of Nagaur district, an FIR has been lodged in last December against the director of the film Padmaavat Sanjay Leela Bhansali, film actor Ranvir Singh and Deepika Padukone. There was hearing of the case in Rajasthan High Court to cancel the lodged FIR against them. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s advocates Ravi Bhansali and Nishant Bora said that they can show the film before the court on February 05, 2018.
High court judge Sandeep Mehta, who is hearing a case related to the film in Jodhpur, along with other Judicial officers will be seeing the movie Padmaavat. Special arrangements have been made by Bhansali for this. Police have also given assurance of providing security to Justice Mehta and the screening of the movie.
Although the Police Commissioner Ashok Rathod asked the court to grant two weeks’ time to showcase the film, the High Court refused it. High Court strongly commented that the Supreme Court has already made it clear to make arrangements for a quick demonstration of this film. Hence, there is no need to ask for two weeks time.
When will Padmaavat be showcased?
During the hearing on Friday, Justice Mehta said that without watching the movie the court cannot decide that religious and social sentiments are getting hurt. Talking about the film’s director’s request for a special screening of Padmaavat, High Court has ordered to show the Padmaavat film on next Monday i.e. February 5, 2018.
As the film is in high-resolution so it is not possible to broadcast in the hall of the judicial academy, urged the lawyer of film producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Hence, the film will be shown in Satyam cinema hall on February 5, 2018. After watching the film on February 5, the next hearing of the case will be on February 06, 2018.
In the latest update, Vice President of Shri Rashtriya Karni Sena- Maharashtra, Yogendra Singh Kathar after the watching the movie in Mumbai, come forward to support the movie and taken back the movement against it.
Jodhpur’s Satyam Multiplex will become Rajasthan’s first theater to screen the first show of movie Padmaavat in Rajasthan.
