New Delhi, September 22, 2017: The Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an organisation of the Rajput community, has said it will oppose screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” if facts are “distorted” in the film.

“Around 20 days back someone from Bhansali’s team had called and told us to see the film, but we asked them to show it to historians and intellectuals. After that we have not heard anything from them,” Lokendra Singh Kalvi, patron and founder of Shri Rajput Karni Sena, told IANS.

His comments come as the first look of Bhansali’s much-awaited film, featuring Deepika Padukone, was released. The actor plays Rani Padmini or Padmavati of Chittor, alongside Ranveer Singh who plays Alauddin Khilji.

In January activists of the Karni Sena had protested and manhandled and misbehaved with the crew of Bhansali’s “Padmavati” claiming that the filmmaker was distorting historical facts in the movie.

They had also damaged some cameras and other equipments. Bhansali had to stop the shooting.

“We will not allow distorted facts to be shown in the film at any cost, and will see to it that the film is not screened in half of India,” Kalvi said.

The Karni Sena claimed that they have got a big library and that in no book is it written that Alauddin Khilji, a powerful ruler of the Khilji dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate in 13th-14th century, fell in love with Padmavati or that he was her lover.

“They are trying to defame Padmavati by distorting historical facts. It is not acceptable,” an activist of Karni Sena said.

In March some miscreants broke the mirrors in Padmini Mahal (palace) in Chittorgarh Fort where Alauddin Khilji is believed to have seen Rani Padmavati or Padmini.

Shri Rajput Karni Sena claims that the mirror was invented years after Padmavati lived and therefore it is a completely untrue story. (IANS)

  • Deepika Padukone talks about the importance of social change
  • She talked about unity among celebrities
  • She also talked about mental disorders

“I think it is extremely important for those who are in positions of influence or power to bring about social change. It is extremely important for them to speak up about whatever issue it might be,” Deepika told IANS in an interview.

Of late, film actors and filmmakers are attempting storylines which have a strong underlying message that can bring change in society. The latest example is Rani Mukerji’s “Hichki”, which talks about how a woman with Tourette Syndrome, a neuropsychiatric disorder, makes it her strength and becomes a teacher.

"Padmavati" not to release before March, according to CBFC.

“As long as anything that you consume, whether it is social media or otherwise, is done in moderation, and you are aware about your social health, I think you are on the right path,” said the 32-year-old.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters to her is “peace of mind”. Deepika said she wants to see India as the happiest nation in the world.

“My vision for the Foundation is that we become the happiest country in the world. I see Bhutan having their happiness minister, and even some of the Scandinavian countries have the highest rate of mental happiness and I want India to be there, sooner or later,” she signed off. IANS
