Bhansali says Padmavati work of fiction, CBFC says will consult historians

The CBFC chief appeared before the petition's panel that also took up the film for discussion and its chair C P Joshi, who is also from BJP, is understood to have noted that Bhansali had failed to take cognisance of the faith and reverence in the figure of Padmavati. "I gave him two hits - "Khamoshi" and "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" and he took Shah Rukh in the next one (Devdas)", he joked. Some panel members said it seemed that Bhansali's movies tend to target communities, thus triggering social tension.

BJP MP Anurag Thakur issued a statement yesterday which read, "Taking a stand to bring an end to the controversy, Member of Parliament Anurag Thakur-led Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, has invited Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification, along with Director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali, to present their views on the controversy surrounding the movie". The protests against the film were based on "rumours". The censor board is yet to certify the film but it has passed the song Ghoomar.

The 30-member panel comprises several actor-turned-MPs, including Hema Malini, Raj Babbar and Paresh Rawal, who are hearing out all parties to take a decision not just on Padmavati but also on other films with a historical context.

Bhansali and Joshi appeared before the standing committee, while the CBFC chief deposed before the Lok Sabha panel as well.

"If the Supreme Court gives its verdict, or the Censor Board gives its certificate, everybody should respect it", Khan said. However, the whole process of clearing the 3D version of a movie is completed different from that of clearing the movie in a 2D version and there are some of the visual impacts some scenes may have on children.

Sources told IANS that the film-maker was asked why he had screened the movie for a few select journalists even before it was cleared by the censor board.

Joshi also informed the panel that the CBFC would appoint a team of experts to look at the content of the film, said sources.

MPs CP Joshi and M Birla had approached the parliamentary panel headed by Anurag Thakur to ensure that the movie is not released. The TMC, specifically, has raised objections over people commenting on the film without seeing it. A movie is meant for entertainment, not for creating a tensed atmosphere across the country.
