Padmavati row: Protesters demand screening of film before expert panel

| | Jaipur | in Sunday Pioneer

Protests seeking a ban on upcoming Bollywood film 'Padmavati' continued on Saturday as members of royal families, right-wing outfits and even tourist guides demanded that the Deepika Padukone-starrer be screened before an expert panel, ahead of its commercial release.

BJP MLA and a member of the erstwhile Jaipur royal family, Diya Kumari, launched a signature campaign today against the film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, saying if historical facts were distorted in the film, it should not be allowed to hit the screens.

Kumari also said the film should be screened before a panel of experts as had been agreed upon by its makers.

"The panel should ascertain that the historical facts as depicted in the film are correct and then only it should be allowed to be released," she added.
