BJP's MP Shatrughan Sinha has slammed director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for organising a special screening of his upcoming film Padmavati for media before getting it approved by CBFC.
Speaking at an event organised by Karni Sena, which has been protesting against the film Padmavati, Sinha said that Bhansali should have organised a special screening of ‘Padmavati’ for Rajput community people. He said Bhansali promised that he will screen the film first to the members of Karni Sena but didn’t keep his promise. The actor-turned-politician also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and I&B Minister Smriti Irani to break silence on the entire controversy.
Shatrughan Sinha was felicitated by presenting a photograph of queen Padmini by the Karni Sena for his firm stand against Bhansali's Padmavati.
Earlier, the members of Karni Sena has threatened that whoever will behead Deepika and Bhansali will be rewarded with a bounty amount of Rs 10 crores.
Padmavati which was scheduled to release on 1 December has been postponed. The makers are now targeting for a February release.
