Protests over Padmavati in Kolkata

Kolkata, dhns: A group of protesters from the Bharat Kshatriya Samaj and Brahman Samaj on Saturday staged protests against the release of Padmavati and demanded that some objectionable scenes be deleted from the movie before its release.

The protesters led by Bharat Kshatriya Samaj president Rajesh Singh burnt pictures of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

"Some of the scenes in the movie are extremely objectionable and hurt the feelings of the Hindu population of India. They are also not good for the country's culture, and hence, should be removed from the movie before it is released. We also demand that the government set up a committee of intellectuals and representatives from the Rajput community to oversee the film's release," demanded Rajesh Singh, president of Bharat Kshatriya Samaj.

A spokesman for the Brahman Samaj said they have nothing against any actor of the movie. "They (the actors) simply performed their roles. The lead actor also did what she was asked to do and she might not be aware of the fact that she had been portraying the character of Padmavati in a completely different manner from what the real Padmavati was. We have nothing against her. But, the objectionable contents, some of which have already been shown in the trailer, have to be deleted," he said.
