Protest against Padmavati reaches Delhi, Bhansali's effigy burnt

Protest against Padmavati reaches Delhi, Bhansali's effigy burnt

The Padmavati issue has been overstretched and that is the reason why it has been there on the new channels for such a long time and still is.

After Viacom 18 Motion Pictures voluntarily deferred the release date of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much anticipated period drama Padmavati, the makers might have found themselves in a fix. Though the film's trailer was welcomed warmly by the audience, the director's woes started soon after Rajput Karni Sena, along with various other political and religious organisations, started raising objections to the film's content. And surprisingly, these open threats have not been considered equal to a crime in India.

Meanwhile, condemning the act, President of Karni Sena has reportedly said that although the protest against the film "Padmavati" is justified, such acts are not justified. Kalvi said in Hyderabad he had written to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, urging her to use "India's good diplomatic ties with England in this matter".

Oh my god

"I think it's very, very unfortunate. But yes it would be nicer to feel safer or protected at this point". He also apparently added that they will never resort to such means of protest against the film and that it is not how their group functions. Cinema has the power to bring the people together, to unite people and to spread love.

Various actors and filmmakers have come out supporting the Deepika Padukone starrer and its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali including Shabana Azmi, Rajkummar Rao, Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar. On the other side, fans are eagerly waiting to watch the movie, but due to incomplete papers, the release date has been postponed from December 1. But since the film hasn't been certified yet by the CBFC and the protests also haven't seized, the makers have pushed the release to 2018.

Elimination of Violence Against Women
The groups recommend five steps health care workers can take respond to and help prevent violence against women. This evidence, however, doesn't improve the actions for women's inclusion, leadership and protection.
