Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], January 22 (ANI): A group of protestors from Rajput Karni Sena created a ruckus and tore the poster of 'Padmaavat' outside a movie hall Telangana.

The manager of Tivoli Theatre said that they informed about the same to Begumpet police, following which they reached there and pacified the matter.

"Few persons came to Tivoli Theatre and tore the posters of Padmaavat, which is going to be screened on 25. We immediately informed the matter to Begumpet police. They reached the spot and spoke to them and sent them back," the manager said.

Earlier, members of same organisation burnt 'Padmaavat' posters and staged a protest against the release of the movie in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow and said, "We will protest in front of every theatre and urge not to screen the movie".

The Supreme Court, recently, stayed notifications issued by the four states - Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat - to ban the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum-opus.

In its interim order, the court said all states are constitutionally obliged to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident during the screening of the film, after permission has been granted by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

The flick has run into trouble time and again, as members of several Rajput factions have accused the director of the film, Bhansali of distorting history.

Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles, the film is all set to release on January 25. (ANI)
