Padmavati is an upcoming Bollywood epic movie directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, based on the epic poem Padmavat by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. Padmavati starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor.
Gujarat Chief minister Vijay Rupani said the home department decided to ban the film to avoid possible breakdown of law and order in the poll-bound state. “No Padmavati in Gujarat. The government will not allow its release in the state. We don’t want any controversy and law and order situation in the state,” he said.
The Government of Gujarat will not allow #Padmavati – a movie hurting sentiments of Rajputs – to get released in the State. We can’t allow our history to be distorted. We believe in freedom of speech & expression but any foul play with our great culture is not tolerated.

The film was based on the life of Rani Padmini, the king of Chittorgarh, in Rajasthan and decided to bring Padmavathi in the next month, and the film crew was involved in the work. In the film, Rajani Padmini’s history has been misinterpreted by the BJP, Rajaputra Sena, and Karni Sena.
Rani Padmini who died in the fire with 12 thousand women to save her from the Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji. They blamed Allauddin Khilji in the Padmavathi film, as Rani Padmini was mistaken.
