Chandigarh [India], Nov 22 (ANI): Haryana will take a decision on permitting screening of film 'Padmavati' in the state after it gets clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), said Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference here, Khattar said, "Any decision on permitting screening of film 'Padmavati' in the state will be taken only after CBFC gives a go-ahead. However, nobody would be allowed to hurt sentiments of people belonging to a particular community."
Ammu has announced a reward of Rs. 10 crore for beheading Padukone and Bhansali.
"Whatever he (Ammu) has said are his personal views, and the government has nothing to do with it. The party had also issued a showcause notice to Ammu. I understand that a complaint has also been filed against him and the law would take its own course," Khattar said.
Padmavati has been facing controversy since its inception. The director was roughed up by the Rajput Karni Sena members in Jaipur, and the film's sets were vandalised earlier this year.
The epicentre of protests is Rajasthan. The Karni Sena activists have upped the ante against Padmavati by staging protests in various parts of the country, covering Bangalore in the South as well. (ANI)
