Padmaavat: SC to hear contempt plea against Karni Sena and four states

Padmaavat: SC to hear contempt plea against Karni Sena and four states

Padmaavat hit the theaters on 25th January, Thursday, and protests have been unabated across the country. The magnum opus has already been postponed due to several controversies in and around the movie and the agitations are getting violent in several regions. Protests engulfed in various states in the country with four states (Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh) refusing to screen Padmaavat citing law and order reasons. Even after a Supreme Court order, The Multiplex Association of India decided not to screen the Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh-Shahid Kapoor-starrer in these states. The self-enforced ban, however, goes against the Supreme Court directive to release the film across the country.
