Under the banner of Rajasthan Rajput Samaj, Rajput community members took out a protest rally here on Sunday, charging that history is twisted in 'Padmavati' Hindi film.
The protest rally was taken out from Dajibanpet to Mini Vidhan Soudha, via Chennamma Circle, and effigies of film director Sanjay Bansali and heroine Deepika Padukone were also burnt. Raising slogans, protesters stated that the film should not be released. A memorandum was submitted to Union and State governments through the tahsildar.
"The film has scenes which damage the true image of Rani Padmavati. It would hurt Rajput community, and would insult the Indian culture. The film should not be released, while Sanjay Bansali and Deepika Padukone should also apologise," they said.
Kalosingh Chauhan, Subashsingh Jamadar, and others led the protest, while Karnataka Rakshana Vedike members also extended support to the protest.
