Padmaavat Release: 2000 Women Threaten to Commit Suicide!

Probably for the first time in Indian film history, as many as two thousand women have threatened to commit suicide with the aim of stopping the release of just a 'film'.

Thousands of women took out a massive rally in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh town in order to warn the authorities against releasing 'Padmaavat', a high-budget historical film that had to cross numerous hurdles like altering release date, changing title, covering heroine's waist with VFX, move to the Supreme Court to get order against ban etc. to finally get a release on Jan 25.

About two thousand women in Rajasthan have reportedly registered for committing suicide by jumping into fire if the film releases in theatres. The women have submitted a memorandum addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard. In the memorandum, they cited that they had taken the unprecedented decision to ensure Rani Padmini's honour, and they warned the authorities that all the registered two thousand women would commit suicide a day before the screening of Padmaavat if the film doesn't get banned.

Meanwhile, Karni Sena, which has been protesting against the film ever since its launch, called for a shutdown across the country on Jan 25 to protest against the film's release. They even warned the theatre owners that they themselves will be responsible for the consequences if they screen Padmaavat.

In the wake of the ultimatums from the women groups and Karni Sena, the state govts in Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh plan to tighten the security over the next couple of days to maintain law and order.
