The right-wing group Karni Sena has announced that it will withdraw their protest against ‘Padmavat’. Shri Karni Sena has also announced that they would facilitate the screening of the movie in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat as well as across all cinema houses in India. The movie was supposed to be released on 1 December 2017, but was finally released on 25th January due to protests in India.

However, many screens still did not show the movie – fearing violence and destruction of property. Shri Karni Sena said they have come to realize that the movie speaks of the glory of the Rajput clan.

The Rajasthan High Court on Friday asked the makers of Padmaavat to “discreetly” screen the movie for the court on Monday. At the time, the court said the “screening of the movie is essential for securing the ends of justice”.

Yogendra Singh, member of Karni Sena group, said that a few members of the community watched the film on the directions of the organization’s national President Sukhdev Singh Gogamadi in Mumbai.

They found that Padmaavat glorifies the bravery and sacrifices of Rajputs and they have concluded that every Rajput would feel proud after watching the movie. They also expressed their satisfaction that movie does not contain any objectionable scenes between Queen Padmini and King Alauddin Khilji that could offend the Rajputs.

In a letter, they informed the media that they are taking back the protest and will help the administration to release the movie in other states.

Despite the repeated assurances by Sanjay Leela Bhansali that there were no love-scenes between Padmini and Khilji, the protest continued across India, and delayed the release of the movie for over 2 months.

The Karni Sena has raged a protest for the past one year, claiming the movie has distorted their history and that the makers have disgraced their revered ‘Queen Padmini’ that has hurt the sentiments of the Rajput community.

They issued death threats to the producer Bhansali and threatened Deepika Padukone that they would chop off her nose if the movie was released.

Despite the repeated assurances by Sanjay Leela Bhansali that there were no love-scenes between Padmini and Khilji, the protest continued across India, and delayed the release of the movie for over 2 months. Last month, Supreme Court intervened and overturned the ban that allowed the release of the movie across India.

The Rajasthan High Court on Friday asked the makers of Padmaavat to “discreetly” screen the movie for the court on Monday. At the time, the court said the “screening of the movie is essential for securing the ends of justice”.
