Karni Sena threatens to not spare Bhansali if the facts in Padmavati is distorted


As the release of Padmavati is nearing, the film is encircled with unending controversies. It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is unable to get released from its clutches. Reportedly, Bhansali is yet again under the radar of Karni Sena group who were in the news for wrecking the sets of Padmavati in Jaipur. Bhansali has been warned by the group to display historically correct facts in the film.

The national convenor of Rajput Karni Sena, Pramod Rana threatened that he wouldn’t allow to release the film if it conveys incorrect facts, and if it all it does then Bhansali would have to face the wrath.

In an interview, Rana said, “We cannot give permission to tamper with the rich history of India. The only thing that we want is that Sanjay Leela Bhansali should show the movie to some of the foremost people of our organisation and tell them that we are not tempering any fact of the history. If he has shown some wrong facts in the movie, then he should delete that scene. This matter is not about one caste. It is everyone’s right to save the heritage of the Indian history. “I don’t need to tell you what we will do. You saw Jaipur, Kolhapur, I don’t think I need to you anything. We are doing a programme on November 12 in Gujarat. But if the movie releases with wrong facts, we won’t leave Bhansali.”

He further went on to mention that Bhansali had promised to have a screening of the film before them, however, he has failed to fulfill his promise.

Rana said, “In Jaipur, Bhansali promised in writing that he will show the movie to us with right historical facts. But he did not show us the movie.”
