Our nation currently stands divided based on the different opinions related to the launch of Padmavati. But the majority of us won't take a step forward and oppose this issue which actually holds no true value.
The filmmakers insist that Padmavati delightfully captures the glory, dignity, and tradition of the Rajputana culture. However, Lokendra Singh Kalvi, presently a BJP supporter and the lead activist of the Rajput community Karni Sena continues to oppose against the movie claiming the movie distorts historical Rajput facts.
We don't quite believe so, as clearly there is no evidence against the claims. Those who actually have watched the movie in a private screening state that the movie does not include anything that could hurt a community.
So what exactly are the objections? Let's find out:
But journalists like Rajat Sharma, after watching the movie have reported that there is nothing of the sort in the movie and the objection is just plainly a rumor.
We are quite against this logic as queens and princesses do perform, but in the female quarters which is also called as Zenana. No male, other than the king is allowed to watch this dance and this is exactly how it was shown in the film.
Jayasi long ago glamorized Padmini in his epic poem, and no one really knows whether she lived a fancy life as a queen or a simple one.
It just sounds like a tactic to oppose the movie and avoid its release. Think for yourself, won't it just call for another legal problem for Padmavati even if they considered this?
We should probably get real with our lives instead of whining about a nationwide ban on the movie. We should seriously support the movie and the filmmaker rather than fighting over fiction.
We hope we get to see Padmavati in theatres soon!
