Republic Day: 3 Gujarat and Rajasthan districts ask schools not to play Padmaavat song

After being legally incapable of banning the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat in Gujarat and Rajasthan, authorities in at least three districts of the two states have instructed its schools not to play the Ghoomar song from the movie during Republic Day celebrations. These are same states where multiplex owners are afraid to screen the film because of the threats given by right-wing groups.
