Pahlaj Nihalani claims it’s illegal to export film

Former CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani claims it’s illegal to export film before certification

Following massive protests, Viacom18 Motion Pictures announced in a statement that they were voluntarily deferring the release of the film out of “respect and regard for the law of the land” including the Central Board of Film Certification”.

Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which has been in the eye of the storm in the country owing to its historical content has got a clearance from the British censor board despite being deferred in India. The film hasn’t been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in India yet. Interestingly, the film which was slated to release on December 1 here, will now be screened on the same day in the UK.

However, former CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani, who always found himself in the middle of controversies, has claimed that it is illegal to export a film before getting clearance in India.

Nihalani, during an interview with Time Now said, “First of all he (probably referring to Sanjay Leela Bhansali) cannot export the film and get the certificate before certification in India. Because after the clearance only one can export the film. He has done it. It is illegal. As CBFC Chairman, I have in the past taken action against 2-3 producers. The government will come to know and I think he will face the tune of the legal action.”

Following massive protests, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio behind Padmavati, on November 19, announced in a statement that they were voluntarily deferring the release of the film out of “respect and regard for the law of the land” including the Central Board of Film Certification”.

They said a new release date will be announced once the “requisite clearances” are in place.

With the film’s release date nearing, the situation of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’ seems to be getting unpleasant by the day. Commenting on the uproar that the film has triggered, Deepika Padukone recently questioned the state of the country and also stated that “we have regressed” as a nation. In retaliation to her comments, members of Rajput Karni Sena on Tuesday vandalised a theatre in Kota in Rajasthan, after rumours of the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film being shown surfaced.

As the release date of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ draws near, the protests against the film only seem to be intensifying. However, in the midst of all the drama, it seems some of Rajput protest groups can perhaps be reasoned with. According to reports, R.P. Singh, leader of Akhand Rajputana Seva Sangh claims to support the film if it satisfies the sensibilities of the members of his group. Apparently, the leader got in touch with people from Bhansali Productions who assured to screen the film especially for them between the 15th and 18th November. Singh also added that a delegation of eleven men will be watching this special screening and if they Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been battling a lot of controversies stirred up by fringe groups and political parties. However the director now has a reason to smile after the Queen of Rajasthan’s Bundi, Mayuri Singh has come out in his support and the release of the film.

In an interview with ANI, the Queen said, “Let the movie Padmavati release first, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has assured us of nothing demeaning (of the Rajput clan has been shown) in it.”

Days after the Supreme Court refused a plea seeking to ban the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial historical drama ‘Padmavati’ featuring Deepika Padukone as the Rajput goddess queen, the royal family of Mewar has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union ministry of information and broadcasting and the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to withhold permission to release the film on December 1.
M K Vishvaraj Singh of Udaipur-Mewar royal family said in his letter that although Bhansali claimed the film is “well researched, factual and true to history”, it is based on a text that’s not regarded as accurate.

Ranveer Singh’s new ‘Padmavati’ poster is out and is enough to send chills down the spine due to his super-villainous looks.
Reflecting the devil inside, Ranveer portrays the dreaded ruler Sultan Alauddin Khilji seated on his golden throne in the lap of luxury and grandeur. Ranveer plays the troublemaker king who brought havoc in the lives of Maharawal Ratan Singh played by Shahid Kapoor and Rani Padmini (Deepika Padukone) in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film ‘Padmavati’.

Things don’t seem to be getting anywhere better for Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his upcoming magnum opus ‘Padmavati’.
After the Supreme Court dismissed the stay plea on the release of ‘Padmavati’, Girraj Singh Lotwara, the president of Shri Rajput Sabha reportedly said that they won’t be responsible if the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is beaten up by any youth whenever and wherever he is seen.
Earlier too, the director was given threats against the release of the film, especially in Rajasthan and cases of The Supreme Court refused a plea seeking to ban the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial ‘Padmavati’ epic drama featuring Deepika Padukone as a Rajput queen. The court said it could not intervene since the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was yet to decide about its certification.

The film, which also stars Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as invader Alauddin Khilji, is set for release on December 1, 2017. The movie has been a subject of many controversies. Some Hindu groups After months of silently dealing with a number of controversies propagated by various fringe groups, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali came on record to crush allegations about his film ‘Padmavati’. In a video message that he released on Wednesday evening, the director assured everyone that his film upholds the honour of the Rajputs and does not depict anything that may hurt anyone’s sentiments.
However, if latest reports are anything to go by then the makers of the historical drama are allegedly being pressured to postpone the release of the film, citing political reasons.
