“The State Government had issued an order that the film wouldn’t be allow to release in Gujarat. Despite changes, the Gujarat Government would continue the same order and there is no scope of release of this film in the State,” said CM Rupani.

Already Rajasthan and Goa have banned on the film after the changes suggested by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Originally the film was to release on December 1 last year but due to protest from various sections of society especially from Kshtriya community in parts of the country, the release delayed.

Top Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor among others have acted in this controversial film.
