The censor board, which comes under the Ministry, has given a certificate to release the film: Congress leader Raj Babbar

The lead couple Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapur have been trolled for speaking up for the movie

With Rajasthan Chief Minister saying that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie 'Padmavat' will not be released in her state, the Congress on Tuesday said there was a conflict between the central and state governments on the issue.

"For us, the release of any film means it has been certified by the censor board (Central Board of Film Certification).

The government of India should ask if she is opposed to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry.

"The censor board, which comes under the Ministry, has given a certificate to release the film," Congress leader Raj Babbar said.

"Is she not opposing the central government by not allowing the film to release (in Rajasthan)," he asked.

Babbar said: "This is a conflict between the central and state governments. She should reply to this."

Vasundhara Raje on Monday said 'Padmavati', now rechristened 'Padmavat', will not be released in cinema halls across the desert state.
