HC on Padmavati: Do you want a situation where people can't voice their opinion?

MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Thursday asked where the country was headed while alluding to "open threats" made to stall the release of the film Padmavati+ and the announcement of a reward to "kill" its lead actress Deepika Padukone.

"In which other country do you see threats made to artistes and performers? It is distressing to know a person makes a feature film and several others work tirelessly towards it but are unable to release the film for public viewing because of continuous threats... A feature film cannot be released in this country. What have we come to?" asked a bench of Justices S C Dharmadhikari and Bharati Dangre.

While pointing out that threats are being issued openly and shown on television, the judges said people are taking pride in announcing rewards for killing artistes and performers. "Today somebody says, 'I will give a reward if you get a performer, artiste, actress killed'... Even chief ministers are saying they will not allow release of the film in their states," said Justice Dharmadhikari, adding, "This is censorship of a different kind. If this is happening to people with financial strength and backing, what about poor people?"


The court's remarks were made while it rapped CBI and state CID for their failure to trace the absconding killers of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare despite being given time to crack the cases.

The judges said those who "openly and boldly" voice their opinion are being targeted by "people who won't like their opinion" and threatened with elimination by fringe groups. "That is what is disturbing us. We have been noticing that at the core of all these crimes is the bold attempt being made by fringe groups to attack those who voice their rational thoughts, feelings and expressions," they added.

Hyderabad: A recent study reflects that the controversy over the film Padmavati' is driven by caste considerations led by caste groups. The study by Chrome Data Analytics was conducted in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, among adult respondents. The study focussed on freedom of expression. So how many people are interested in watching Padmavati' the film after all the acrimony over it? Research found that 81 per cent of the respondents in the metros plan to watch the movie despite the controversies surrounding it

The survey seeks to analyse public insight around the controversy, their views and if artistic freedom should be bereft of religious sentiments. The sample-size constituted 53 per cent of women and 47 per cent men. About 29 per cent of the people said that film makers should not think about religious sentiments or cultural sensitivity while making a movie. However, 71 per cent respondents felt freedom of expression should be respectful of religious sentiments.

 

The film was initially scheduled for release on December 1, but that has now been voluntarily deferred by the producers. Director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali is again planning to postpone the release date for multiple reasons. Amidst of all the controversies, BJP MLA from Goshamahal, T Raja Singh, had even requested Telangana CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao to ban the screening of the film till the film-maker makes changes protestors have asked for. States of Rajasthan, MP and UP have already imposed a ban on the film.

In a letter to Mr Rao, Mr Singh said the film hurts the sentiments of Hindus by manipulating history of Rani Padmavati. MLA Raja Singh said, "Rani Padmavatiji was from the Rajput community, and Rajputs treat her as a goddess and respect her immensely. On the other side of the divide, Diana Monteiro, director and counseling psychologist at Hyderabad Academy of Psychology says, "Everyone must get to express themselves and films aren't real life. We must realise that before we get offended by films.

Yup Feb is the call now. I dont think they will clash with other films. Too many things at stake already.

I heard 9th Feb. I just want people to accept the film .. 

That will be justice for the team.
