Gurugram (Haryana), Jan 22 (ANI): There have been constant reports of protests from various parts of the nation against the much controversial film ‘Padmaavat’. Recently, the Apex Court directed no one can ban the film after Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat decided to ban its screening. In regard of the SC’s order, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday stated that it’s the government’s duty to comply with Supreme Court's order. Adding to it, he said whoever wants to screen the movie, will be provided security.
