Padmaavat: Rajput Karni Sena to restrict Prasoon Joshi’s entry to Rajasthan

A day after the Supreme Court lifted ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ imposed by six state governments, Rajput Karni Sena members have stated they wouldn’t allow CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi to enter Rajasthan.

‘Padmaavat’ releases on the 25th January. On the same day, the Jaipur Literature Festival is about to begin and Joshi has to attend the same. (Also Read: Post SC’s decision, contradictions appear in Karni Sena’s statements)

“We won’t allow Prasoon Joshi to enter Rajasthan. The moment he steps into the airport, we will follow him and we will protest,” Sukhdev Singh, a member of the organisation told NDTV.

The fringe group, yesterday, blocked roads in Rajasthan and caused destructions at a theatre in Bihar, in protest of the Supreme Court’s verdict.

However, the makers as well as actors are keeping their fingers crossed for a peaceful release.
