Censor Board must refuse certificate to Bhansali, says Hindu outfit

The Censor Board of Film Certification must refuse a certificate to Sanjay Leela Bhansali until and unless he shows it to representatives of the Hindu organisations and clear their doubts, according to Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS).

A group of office bearers of HJS on Tuesday visited the Censor Board office and gave a representation.

"Some organisations have also raised objection that few objectionable scenes were shot on Queen Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. In this regard Bhansali had presented a video in which he claimed, 'I was inspired by Queen Padmavati. There is nothing objectionable in my film; only rumours are spread'. If this were true, the simple solution is to exhibit the film in presence of the representatives of the Hindu organisations and clear their doubts," HJS spokesperson Satish Kochrekar said.

"The Censor Board should interfere and take a stand that unless Bhansali agrees to this demand, a censor certificate will not be issued to the film. If Bhansali fails to take such action, the Censor Board should refuse the certification of the film," he added.

He pointed out that 'ghumar' is a type of dance in vogue in Rajasthani culture and only a certain section in the society performs this dance.

"This dance was never performed by any queen or princess. This aspect should have been studied by Bhansali. Rather, a doubt is created that despite studying this aspect, Bhansali is committing such nefarious acts to produce box office hit films," he said.

"To depict Queen Padmavati, who had committed 'Johar' (self-immolation) to protect her character, as dancing before public is her great contempt. Therefore, the scene of the song and dance should be cut," he added.

"Such scenes in a film are deeply imbibed on unblemished mind of children. As a result, the future generation would remember only the dance of Queen Padmavati from the film. Thus. We are imparting wrong sanskars (values) on the future generation," he said.
