NC’s Rana writes to CM seeking ban on ‘Padmavati’ film’s release

‘I request you to kindly order ban on film’s release in JK’


Srinagar, Nov 20 (KNS): Senior NC leader and legislator from Nagrota in Jammu region, Davender Sigh Rana, has written to the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and sought ban on the feature film, Padmavati.
“Reports in the media suggest that the contents of the feature film, Padmavati, directed by Sajnay Leela Bansali, based on the epic poem Padmavat are likely to hurt the sentiments of a particular community/ religion and so has the potential to disrupt peace and order in Jammu province,” Rana has written in the letter to Chief Minister.
“Many deputations from across the Jammu province have approached me in this regard in the last couple of days. In view of the above, I request you to kindly order ban on the release of the film in Jammu and Kashmir till its contents are verified and the various religious and community group are satisfied that the film is not likely to hurt the sentiments of the people,” he says in the letter.
