Bharatiya Janta Party(BJP) has decided to write an official letter to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Central government and Election Commission (EC) to hold the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period film Padmavati for a limited period of time. According to the BJP, Padmavati may hurt the sentiments of the Kshatriya community.
Wrong Depiction Of History In Padmavati
The political party has alleged that Padmavati has wrongly depicted the history as they link queen Padmavati with aggressive ruler Alauddin Khilji. BJP spokesperson IK Jadeja said:
“We are writing to the ECI, CBFC and the Centre, seeking to stop the film’s release for a temporary period till the issue is resolved.”
BJP Is Really Concerns Or It’s Just A Political Agenda
As expected, the party has denied the allegation that it is raising the issue because of the upcoming elections in Rajasthan. Jadeja added: ‘An attempt has been made to wrongly link the two characters (Padmavati and Khilji) of history.”
