In a major development to the ongoing ‘Padmavati’ crisis, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has banned the Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

The Rajput Community had reportedly submitted a memorandum before CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan seeking a ban on ‘Padmavati’. The CM has reportedly said that he won’t be allowing the release of Bhansali’s magnum opus in his state.

This comes after the makers of ‘Padmavati’ voluntarily deferred the release date of the film. The film was earlier dated to release on December 1.

Meanwhile, Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi had also slammed the makers for allowing the film to be screened for various media channels before obtaining a certificate from the board. The CBFC had sent the film back to the producer as the application for the certification was incomplete.
