He will speak with his team and the producers before sending out a reply. The Parliamentary panel is mainly concerned about the law and order situation getting out of hand and the legality of the select media screening before the censorship of the film. In the meantime, they have left it to the CBFC to decide if the film can or should be screened or not. As LK Advani told the press after the meeting, “Let the CBFC do its job.” Anyway, according to a report in, here are the 7 questions that the pane shot at SLB and Prasoon Joshi during the meeting!

# Can a filmmaker depict the banned practice of Sati?

# Can a film be released abroad before it is cleared for screening in India?

# Is a selective media screening of a movie without a CBFC clearance fair and ethical?

# How could SLB assume that the movie could be released on December 1 when he had applied to the CBFC on November 11 (as per the Cinematography Act, the CBFC may take 68 days before certifying a movie)?

# Was the selective media screening an act to influence the CBFC?

# How could the controversial film reach the UK when it had not been cleared here?

# Was the whole controversy around the film created for publicity?

What is your take on these questions? Will the controversy surrounding Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor‘s Padmavati finally get resolved? Well, time will only tell.
