New Delhi, Jan 18: Finally Sanjay Leea Bhansali may be having the last laugh. This news comes a big relief for Padmavat filmmakers. Supreme Court stays ban and gag order on Padmavati. Apex Court puts freedom over fringe.
Not only this, it has also stopped other states from imposing ban. This is a big relief for Padmavat filmmakers who were facing one problem or the other ever since it had announced the release of the film.
The film has become the talk of the town and its prospects of a stupendous business at box office cannot be ruled out.
While four BJP-ruled states had put a ban on the film, it's famous song 'ghoomar' was played in a cultural event to welcome Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and PM Narendra Modi. They were reportedly welcomed with a dance set to the ‘controversial song’ from the film, Ghoomar, in Ahmedabad.
According to an India Today report and Scroll report Ghoomar was played at a cultural function organised to welcome Netanyahu.
Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhupendra Singh said today that he did not oppose the playing of "Ghoomar" song from the controversial film "Padmaavat" and claimed his remarks on the issue were "misconstrued".
Singh yesterday courted controversy for his reported remark that the popular song should not be played as the film's screening was not allowed in the state.
