After Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh Goa to ban Padmavat?

Padmavat still remains the biggest newsmaker for a variety of reasons. Controversies started to flow in right from the day the film started its shoot. Vandalism on the sets, violence with cast and crew and finally various groups calling for a ban on the film, the list is endless. While something or the other kept cropping up, the film came triumphant, all set to release during the Republic Day weekend.

But it still faces hurdles in its path in form of bans by various state governments. First the Rajasthan CM announced the ban followed by Himachal and now we hear the film might face a ban in Goa as well.

According to a report in Times of India, Goa police have recommended to the government to “avoid” screening of Padmavat during peak tourist season due to its personnel being engaged in security arrangements. “As per intelligence inputs, no major law and order situation is expected to arise in the state of Goa. However, the ongoing season being of great tourist rush and police forces being engaged in arrangements… we should avoid giving opportunity to people to agitate at this stage,” said the letter addressed to the secretary to the CM.

But nothing is in concrete regarding this. The report states that CM Manohar Parrikar said the government has not taken any call on the recommendation. “We are yet to take a decision,” he told TOI.

Himachal Pradesh CM Jai Ram Thakur had this to say, “I don’t want to say much. We will discuss what to do. The film, indeed, is a controversial one. I respect art but when it comes to people’s sentiments getting hurt, it must be thought about and discussed.”
