Padmavati row: Karni Sena demands resignation of Prasoon Joshi

The makers are yet to make any announcement about the film. As the year was coming to its end, we got the news of CBFC giving a green signal to SLB's period-drama.

Karni Sena, a Rajput community group, has demanded immediate resignation of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi who made the decision to allow Padmavati to be released with a U/A certificate, despite protests from a panel of advisers comprising two historians and a royal family member.

President of Rajput Sabha Giriraj Singh Lotwara said that it was unfortunate that the board wants to favour the film producers instead of considering recommendations of the panel that reviewed the film.

The CBFC had late last month, suggested few modifications in the controversial movie Padmavati, which include changing of the film's title to Padmavat, after which it would be given a UA certificate. We will not accept this. "We don't want any changes in the said song, however, we demand a complete ban on the same", he said. There were speculations that the film will either release on 26 January or on 9 February. Speaking to media in Jaipur, Karni Sena observer Lokendra singh Kalvi said that filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali should forget dreaming about the film's release.

If you thought Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati troubles were over, think again.

Besides Joshi, the meeting was also attended by regular examining committee members, along with other censor board officials. One of the key changes involve the renaming of the film from Padmavati to Padmavat.

Anushka Sharma's next home production venture "Pari" and director Luv Ranjan's "Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety", starring Kartik Aaryan, are slated to release on February 9. Karni Sena claims that the film glorifies the barbarian invader Allauddin Khilji and asked for a total ban on the release of the film.

B-town is abuzz that "Padmavati", which has been making headlines due to its plot line, is set to release on January 25 - the same day as the Akshay Kumar-starrer "Padman".
