The international Executive President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Dr Praveen Bhai Togadia, on Thursday favoured the banning of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film “Padmavati”. Togadia said that the Central Government should ban the movie with immediate effect while using its power.The VHP leader, who was in Jaipur on a two-day trip, said that some people in the name of artistic license are conspiring to defame the revered Hindu figures.Togadia said that the government should ban Padmavati film taking into account sentiments of the public, otherwise it can become a serious law and order situation.He also questioned the timing of the release of the film. “Jodha-Akbar film was released before elections and now Padmavati,” Togadia said.“Padmavati is our mother and our self-esteem and our pride,” he further added. He said that this is not just a matter of Rajputs. It concerns crores of Hindus. He said that no film producer can distort historic facts and present objectionable content in the name of freedom of expression.The central government should ban the movie using its power immediately.Death threats unacceptable: Nana PatekarMeanwhile, actor Nana Patekar said on Thursday that death threats to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone in connection with ‘Padmavati’ film were unacceptable.“Why does controversy happen in his films? I feel this is not a big issue but death threats to Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are completely wrong and unacceptable. As of now, I don’t know how the characters are portrayed. I can react only after watching the film,” Patekar said while speaking to media after attending an event at National Defence Academy in Pune.
