Mumbai Police gears up for Padmaavat release, assures full security

The state government is trying its best to maintain law and order.

He also claimed that he never accepted Bhansali's invitation to watch the movie before its release and said that such information was spread to misguide people.

President of Padmaavat Sangharsh Samiti, Narendrasinh Jadhav, said, "This not an issue concerning the Rajput community alone".

Meanwhile, Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said on Tuesday that most theatre owners in the state had voluntarily made a decision to not screen controversial Bollywood film "Padmaavat" as he emphasised that the state government was trying its best to maintain law and order. "We say it again that we will not allow Padmaavati to be screened in India at any cost", he said angrily while talking to IANS from Gandhinagar.

"Though we have assured police protection to cinema owners, they have informed us that none of them will screen the film on January 25". "As the Supreme Court has allowed its release, this there is tension in the state".

Clash with Padman wasn't expected, says irritated Sidharth Malhotra

Padmaavat, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has becomes one of the most controversial Indian movie of the decade. But Kavi maintains that there was such a scene which has not been deleted. "We have received a letter saying that we want you to watch the film".

Be as it might, the producers Viacom 18 and Bhansali can breathe a sigh of relief and now release the film on schedule without fear of a backlash.

"Following imposition of Section 144, there is prohibition on presence of people carrying firearms and other articles capable of causing injury, raising slogans and exhibiting placards within 200 meters radius of the cinema halls and multiplexes from January 23 to January 28", Singh said.

The deputy chief minister's comments came on a day when Karni Sena leader Lokendra Singh Kalvi issued a veiled threat suggesting there could be violence if the Bollywood flick was released despite widespread opposition.
