First of all its my point of view and yes it does exist.
Lets start from the story behind Queen Padmavati, who is also known as Rani Padmini, was known to be one of the most beautiful women on earth. So obviously a story filmed on her historical life would involve controversies. Ratan Singh, the Rajput ruler of Chittor married her and brought her to his kingdom. Alauddin Khilji sultan of Delhi also heard about her beauty and attacked Chittor to obtain her. All the controversy & the perturbation surrounding the movie Padmavati is mainly because of a few Rajput sections & communities are against some scenes which are being filmed between their beloved queen & Alauddin Khilji.
The so called intolerant scene is, Alauddin Khilji, before capturing Chittor fantasies about Padmavati and in a dream sequence probably beds her. Because of this the Rajput sections and communities got infuriate. They are so concerned that their beloved queen will be portrayed in a obscene manner. In order to showcase their love for her, they have taken the responsibility to protest against this high drama film and have even started threatening the cast of the movie.
The first point against all this uncalled for controversy is that if Padmavati’s life has not been filmed and drafted into a movie, no one would have even known about her existence, not even these so called Rjaputs.
The other very hilarious issue, which is a very important and the only reason of these protests, is the scene in the movie, ironically which is a dream sequence, a “DREAM” sequence, and that’s not even a real scene. Seriously ??? Do we have nothing worth protesting for ?? There countless issues which our country is facing, but NO !!! lets whine about an unreleased film, let’s unleash havoc at theaters, let’s threaten the film caste etc.
The petition for banning the movie, filed in Gujarat High Court states that- “the character of Rani Padmavati has been wrongly portrayed in the movie and has damaged the prestige of community and the character of Rajput queens. The wrong portrayal has hurt the feelings of the Rajput Community ….” The enigma here is nobody gives a shit when the bisexuals are being harassed, when the women are being raped, the country is still still struggling with the paralysis caused by corruption but when it comes to our so called beliefs, culture, history, our Gods & Goddesses, “the feelings” gets hurt and we start behaving barbaric.
All these protests are for this so called Rani, who these Rajputs are claiming to be their mother, who in actuality may or may not have existed and the fact is her existence is debatable. Her name was first mentioned in a poem named “Padmavt”. How could all this even make sense, and these hooligans who are claiming themselves to be an army of some kind, threatening to kill those who are doing their jobs, and I wonder why they are still loose. Here’s their five minutes of fame.
I have the obvious answer for that, OUR LEADERS are protecting and providing support to these communities in order to protect their “vote banks”. All the hullabaloo because. we are facing Mobocracy…..being reigned by sections that maybe are looking out for their five minutes of fame!
If such kind of enrage have been shown against real evils of society, India would have become a better country to live in by now….
