Jammu: A senior leader of opposition National Conference (NC) on Monday wrote a letter to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, seeking a ban on the release of film ‘Padmavati’ in the state till its contents are verified. “I request you to kindly order the ban on the release of feature film ‘Padmavati’ till its contents are verified and the various religious or community groups are satisfied that the film is not likely to hurt the sentiments of the people,” NC Provincial president Devender Singh Rana said in a letter addressed to the Chief Minister.
Rana in the letter, which was released by the party to the media here, said many deputations from across the Jammu province have approached him in this regard in the last couple of days.
Quoting media reports suggesting that the contents of the movie could allegedly hurt the sentiment of a particular community or religion, the NC leader said it has the potential to “disrupt peace and order” in Jammu province.
Various groups across the country, most of them from the Rajput community, have accused director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of distorting historical facts in the film.
