After months of intimidation and protests, the producers of the movie, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, issued a statement Sunday announcing its December 1 release date had been "voluntarily deferred", sparking concerns over issues relating to freedom of speech in the world's largest democracy, according to CNN. Petitioner M.L. Sharma said grave damage would be done to social harmony if the movie were allowed to be released outside India also sought criminal prosecution of the filmmakers for allegedly misrepresenting facts that the CBFC cleared the songs and promos.

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has said that "Padmavati" will not be released in Rajasthan till necessary changes as per the suggestions given to the Centre were incorporated in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie.

The protest against the Bhansali's film was started by Shri Rajput Karni Sena after it vandalised the sets of the film and slapped the director during the shooting of Padmavati in Jaipur in January.

Not even stopping to a Ban, the Karni Sena has threatened the Director and Actress Deepika Padukone with beheadings and public burnings, but no solid action has been taken against them yet.

As news of the decision by the BBFC spread on Thursday morning, advocate ML Sharma rushed to the Supreme Court with a plea demanding that the Padmavati's producers be restrained from releasing the film overseas.

"Padmavati" has been facing the wrath of various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have accused Bhansali of distorting history.

Another round of freezing temperatures on Thanksgiving morning
Monday brought with it plenty of sunshine, transitioning over to high clouds which made for a pretty sunset. The wind, which will make it feel colder, will be steady from the west at 14 to 17 miles per hour .

Most of the anger appears to stem from allegations that Bhansali filmed a romantic dream sequence between the protagonists, which Bhansali has denied.

"I have clarified it earlier and doing it again through this video that there is no such in the film which will hurt anyone's sentiments and sensibilities", the filmmaker added.

Asked whether this announcement by the Chief Minister of banning the film amounted to violation of the model code of conduct which is in effect in the state, state chief electoral officer B.B. Swain said: "I don't know".

"And I am saying this because people of the country and Madhya Pradesh can not accept disrespect of its pride", the BJP leader added. "This is what I want to say", Shraddha told reporters here.

"I have also gone to Chittor and returned and seen all things there".
