SLB has already gone through a lot of legal hindrances because of his movie ‘Padmavati’, but the situation is only getting worse. Opposing the release of the movie, BJP MP of Ujjain, Chintamani Malviya said something which is out of imagination and expection.
Chintamani Malviya, asserted in a Facebook post, “People like Bhansali do not understand any other language. People like him only understand the language of shoes. This country will not disrespect Rani Padmavati. We will not tolerate any distortion of our history.”
“I strongly protest and propose boycotting the movie ‘Padmavati’. I request my well-wishers not to watch this movie. It is shameful to make such films for the greed of money,” the BJP leader told.
“How come filmmakers whose women family members change their husbands every day can understand ‘Jauhar’? Mental deformity of Mr Bhansali would not be tolerated in the name of freedom of expression,” Malviya wrote on Facebook.
Asked about the objectionable language in the post, Malviya said, “If the film industry crosses its boundaries, then it should not be expected that the elected representatives will be within their limits.”
Meanwhile, the Congress demanded Malviya’s expulsion from the BJP over the “offensive” Facebook post and demanded that legal steps be initiated against him. “We also consider Rani Padmavati as an idol for Indian women, but the BJP MP cannot be justified as he has insulted other women,” said Madhya Pradesh Congress spokesman Narendra Saluja.
