Goa CM says 'Padmavati' fate only after Censor clearance

Press Trust of India  |  Panaji 

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today assured a Mahila Morcha delegation that he would look into its demand of banning the screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansalis movie "Padmavati".

Parrikar told reporters after meeting the delegation of the Mahila Morcha that the state cannot afford to have a and order problem which may arise due to the screening of the movie.

The chief minister however said that the state would take a final call on whether to ban the movie or not only after the Censor Board clears its screening.

"As of now the Censor Board's certificate has not been granted. We will take a call after it is granted," he said.

The chief minister said that he is also looking at the issue from a and order perspective.

"A touristic state has to be peaceful. So we will look into both aspects of it," he said.

He added that it was his personal opinion that history should be portrayed correctly because any wrong potrayal might hurt people's sentiments.
