Padmavati row : Sanjay Leela Bhansali to meet Parliamentary Panel!

The main reason behind inviting the director is just to know his views related to the controversy which is going on about the upcoming movie "Padmavati".

The makers of Padmavati have submitted a fresh application for a 3D version of the controversial film, which has been awaiting clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), sources said.

Addressing the ongoing controversy and uproar surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film "Padmavati", veteran actor Nana Patekar said he strongly condemned the death threats given to Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

He told ANI, "Issuing death threats to Deepika Padukone & Sanjay Leela Bhansali is wrong". However, the whole movie was shot in 2D, but the makers have made a decision to convert the movie into a 3D after they got a positive feedback on the 3D trailer. Now, they are waiting for the screening date from the Board.

Various Rajput groups and political leaders have accused Bhansali of distorting history in the movie by using a romantic dream sequence between the Rajput queen Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, a claim repeatedly denied by the filmmaker. Among the questions, it is rumored that the panel will also be sharing opinions about movies based on historic figures and the extent to which a director or creator can be allowed to go to make his/her vision possible without hurting the sentiments of religious groups.

It said the "rule of law" mandated that no one, not even the courts, could pre-judge such matters before the CBFC had taken a decision. The court further added that if the court can't prejudge the movie than why are people doing it.

The Panel will be chaired by Anurag Thakur and will also be hearing from CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi and officials from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

The court's remarks adopt implication with the chief ministers of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh banning the film.
