Padmaavat controversy just got bigger!

Amidst growing protests against the release of ‘Padmaavat’ despite the press shows, the team has got some relief in the state of Maharashtra, the capital of Bollywood films. Political outfit Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has extended support to the team of ‘Padmaavat’. MNS General Secretary Shalini Thackeray states, “If the Censor Board and the Supreme Court have sanctioned permission for the release of ‘Padmaavat’ then it is wrong on the part of Shri Rajput Karni Sena to go against this decision. We are prepared for the release of the film in Mumbai and Maharashtra as well. If anyone tries to stop the release of ‘Padmaavat’ in Mumbai and Maharashtra then MNS is equipped to protect the director and actors of the movie.” Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘Padmaavat’ will have a paid preview on the night of January 24 and will hit the screens on January 25.
