New Delhi:

Rajput groups are coming up with fresh demands to change Padmavati title and a review before the release of the movie. This comes days after huge protests and chaos over alleged romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and Alaudin khilji.

However, Bhansali productions have already made it clear that there is no romance planned in the movie between the two.

At a joint press conference convened by Rajput Sabha to announce that they and Karni Sena agree over the demand that there will be no distortion of facts in the movie.

The president of the Rajput Sabha have also demanded a screening committee be formed to screen the movie before its release but Bhansali productions are yet to act on the request.

During the conference, some of the members of Karni Sena also put up a demand that the film’s title should be changed and there should be no film in name of Padmavati.

“There is no romantic dream sequence or any objectionable/ romantic scene between Rani Padmavati and Allauddin Khijli. It was not a part of the script. It was the misconception and considering the sentiments of the community, we have clarified to them,” Shobha Sant, CEO of the Bhansali Productions said.

“We are trying to present Rani Padmavati's courageous nature. We will make the film which will make the country proud on Rani Padmavati,” she said.

Mahipal said he put forward the sentiments of the youths of the Rajput community by demanding the title change.

“We are thankful to the Bhansali productions that they have agreed to our demand that there will be no distortion of the historic facts in the movie,” he said. Sant, however, said the demand to change the title did not come up in their previous discussions with the group.

“They have made this fresh demand for which I have nothing to say anything. This is not in my jurisdiction. They also did not raise this point in our discussion held before,” Sant said.

Karni Sena members had created a ruckus and manhandled Bhansali while the director was shooting the movie at Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur on Friday.
