Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje has said that ‘Padmavati’ will not be released in the State unless necessary changes as suggested to the Centre are made in the film.

Vasundhara Raje, in the letter to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani last week, had suggested that a committee of historians, film experts and members from the Rajput community be formed to look into the film’s subject and necessary changes be made to it so that it does not hurt the sentiments of any community.

Raje had said that filmmakers have the right to make films as per their understanding but provisions were also there in the Constitution to control such rights in case public sentiments are hurt and law and order disrupted.

Meanwhile, various Rajput groups have been protesting across the country, including in Rajasthan, against the film, alleging it ‘distorts’ history and hurts sentiments of people.
