Worries for the movie Padmavati and its makers doesn’t seem to cease as now Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has decided against its release in the State.

The Bihar CM said that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film "Padmavati will not be screened in the state till controversy surrounding it is over. He ordered concerned officials not to allow the screening of the film after BJP MLA Neeraj Kumar Bablu demanded attention on this issue.

Nitish Kumar has taken this step after several Rajput organisations and NDA leaders demanded a ban on the movie saying that it has demeaned the history and sentiments of Rajputs.

According to reports, Nitish Kumar said Sanjay Leela Bhansali should clarify his stand as objections against the movie are being raised from several quarters and has been surrounded by controversies months before its release.

Nitish Kumar said as long as controversy about the film does not subside, the film would not be released in Bihar.
