Deeply embarrassed by one of its leaders offering a Rs 10 crore bounty on the heads of actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of the film'Padmavati, the BJP said it has issued a show cause to him for making the outr

The circular was, however, soon withdrawn and a show cause notice issued to the officer who issued it.

"The court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate while accepting the complaint has said that it will record my statement on November 27 under Section 200 of Cr.P.C.", complainant Bhawani Shankar Sharma told IANS.

"Besides that the law and order is also our responsibility, so we have decided that we will not allow release of movie "Padmavati" in Gujarat", he said. It had observed that the CBFC had not yet certified the movie and the apex court could not "injunct" a statutory body from doing its duty. Because after the clearance only one can export the film.

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), meanwhile, passed the film without cuts. It said that the film had "moderate violence and injury detail". The 12A rating mandates that the film can not be viewed by a child under the age of 12 unless accompanied by an adult.

Unlike in India, the BBFC is not a government-linked body and operates as an independent certification board with income derived exclusively from the fees it charges for its services, calculated by measuring the running time of films, DVDs and videos and other works submitted for classification.

It seems that no one is ready to release the movie with such accusations, even though the movie can't be banned in any state before certification from CBFC board.

"We will initiate a Clean India Mission in all the cinema halls of India".

The film has been riddled by controversy for a long time and the makers have pushed the release of the film to next year.

Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans
On Sunday, the Cardinals lost to the Houston Texans and Johnson has clearly not stopped watching his former team. Gabbert, 28, was drafted in the first-round of the 2011 NFL Draft by then general manager Gene Smith.

Amu alleged that the movie is misleading, not based on truth and offends Hindu sentiments in the country. "The government will come to know and I think he will face the tune of the legal action". "I have directed the DEO to immediately withdraw this order", he said.

The "Ghoomar" song, features Padukone and Kapoor, was released by the makers of the film recently.

"We can't allow our history to be distorted".

Many groups have been protesting amid rumours that there was a romantic dream sequence between Rajput queen Padmini and Allauddin Khilji.

Adityanath also said that Bhansali should respect the sentiments of people protesting against the film.

Historians are divided on whether Padmini actually existed.

After a string of threats over her portrayal of the 13th century queen Padmavati in Bhansali's magnum opus, the Karnataka government has stepped up security cover to her as well as her family in Bengaluru.

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a fresh plea seeking a direction to the makers of Padmavati to not release the film outside India on December 1.
