New Delhi:

Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial 'Padmaavat' hit the cinema halls on Thursday amid strong protests against the film by fringe groups.

The protests intensified across several states, with members of several fringe outfits taking out rallies, blocking roads and damaging vehicles on Wednesday.

The Rajput Karni Sena gave a call for a 'janta curfew' on January 25 - the day of the film's release - to prevent people from watching 'Padmaavat'. The group's chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi said a 'janta curfew' on cinema halls would mean that the public will stop the film from being exhibited.

Kalvi, who listed nearly 40 different objections with regard to the movie, demanded that films on the lives of Maharana Pratap, Shivaji and other eminent personalities be made.
