Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday said people protesting against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama Padmavati should understand that it is just a movie.

Workers of the right-wing organisation stormed into Aakash Mall in Kota where the cinema hall was located, and vandalised it.

This won't be an isolated incident when Karni Sena members have resorted to taking law in their own hands.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film has been facing a lot of trouble. Watch the video of protesters vandalising the theatre at Kota on Tuesday. The Rajput Karni Sena is claiming that Padmavati insults the Rajput community and is a distortion of history, which "hurts their religious sentiments".

While the Karni Sena and the Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha, a Brahmin community organization have demanded that Bhansali's team should screen the movie for historians and intellectuals before releasing, the director has remained silent. But the makers of Padmavati said that they can do that only after it is granted a certificate by the censor board.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has written to the Election Commission to postpone the release of "Padmavati" in order to avoid collision with the Gujarat Elections, scheduled for December 9 and 14. "It is not acceptable", an activist of Karni Sena said.
