Yogi Adityanath joins Ban Padmavati Brigade? Uttar Pradesh CM says Bhansali is also at fault for hurting people's sentiments

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has spoken about the Padmavati controversy. In a statement given to Times Now, he said that although no one should take the law in their hands, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is also at fault because of the situation he has created with his film.

The fringe, as the Padmavati row shows, has entered the mainstream

He went on to say that the filmmaker, who is known for making films on historical figures, has become accustomed to hurting the sentiments of the people.

The filmmaker has made films like Bajirao Mastani, which was based on the Peshwa warrior, and Padmavati is based on the Rajput Queen, Rani Padmini. Adityanath says if the authorities decide to launch a probe into the controversy, both the protesters and filmmaker will be questioned.

In the end, the politician said that all sections of the society must respect each other's sentiments and not let the situation get out of hand.

Earlier, the deputy chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Keshav Prasad Maurya, announced that he will not let Padmavati release in the state until all controversial scenes are removed.
