Padmavat : FIR against Bhansali quashed

Rajasthan High Court quashed FIR against Sanjay Leela Bhansali after watching “Padmavat” on Tuesday. A special screening was done for the High Court after which Justice Sandeep Mehta quashed FIR against director Bhansali, actors Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.

Cases were filed against the film for hurting religious sentiments. Justice Mehta declared that the movie does not hurt religious sentiments as Padmavati is a historical icon and not a religious one. Hence there is no question of religious feelings. With this point, the court quashed all FIRs against the director and the actors of the movie.

Justice Mehta after seeing the special show specified that the movie’s disclaimer reflects “our glorious past and the military strategy of Rani Padmavati”. He said that the plot of the movie is “a story of supreme sacrifice made by women”.

After the declarations, petitioner’s counsel Ravi commented that FIR against the film was premature. The film shows the bravery of Rajput community and it also reflects Padmavati’s courage.
