Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh also said that nobody will accept the distortion of history and those who are protesting are rightly doing so. "Those feeling hurt by the distortion have the right to protest", he said, adding that protests were a justified recourse in a democratic system.
The Punjab chief minister said nobody had the right to distort history as he told reporters in Chandigarh that he himself has studied history and even been to Chittor.
"The insult will not be tolerated", Chouhan said, eliciting a rousing applause from the audience. In the post, Malviya had written that filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali who understand "jooton ki bhasha" (language of shoes) can not understand the greatness of Rani Padmavati's jauhar, as female members in the family of such filmmakers change their husbands daily.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, while addressing a rally in his State, called the character of "Padmavati" as "Rajmata" and said, "The film which has distorted facts will not be released in the State".
He said he was for a ban on the movie in the state as many delegations from across Jammu region had approached him on the issue in the last couple of days.
This comes a day after the producers of the "Padmavati" deferred the release of the film on December 1, saying it was a voluntary decision and the revised date for the release of the movie will be announced "in due course" of time. "We condemn this super emergency", Banerjee tweeted. "All in the film industry must come together and protest in one voice".
Some Hindu groups, mainly the Karni Sena of Rajasthan, have been vigorously protesting against the movie's release while some political outfits have demanded that its release be deferred in view of the Gujarat Assembly elections.
Padmavati stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as her husband Maharawal Ratan Singh, and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, and is based on the 1303 siege of Chittorgarh by Alauddin Khilji.
