<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>After the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) on Thursday cleared Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick Padmavati, Karni Sena has threatened to burn theatres in the UK.BBFC cleared the movie ‘Padmavati’ without any cuts for release in the UK. “Padmavati’ (12A) moderate violence, injury detail,” stated the official website of the British censor board. “All known versions of this work passed uncut,” it said.However, Sukhdev Singh, a leader of Karni Sena has threatened to burn every UK theatre screening Padmavati.“I myself wanted to go there to protest but the Indian government has confiscated my passport, so I will ask the Rajput community there to protest,” he told a news channel.Singh said that that will go to the international court to get the movie banned.Meanwhile, a functionary at Viacom 18, however, said there was no plan to release the film globally without it being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).As the film was supposed to release on December 1, there are over 50 countries where this process (of certification) is on, he said.The lavishly mounted film, starring Deepika Padukone in the title role, and Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, is a joint production by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions.Many groups have been protesting amid rumours that there was a romantic dream sequence between Rajput queen Padmini and Allauddin Khilji.
