Will Ram-Leela release be stalled in Gujarat?

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s film is under the cloud one more time

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Ram-Leela is facing yet another controversy, even as the film gears up for release on November 15. So what is the issue this time?

On October 20, some members of the Kshatriya community in Rajkot caused damage to property at a mall, as they wanted the posters of the Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone-starrer removed. But why? Because they felt that the film’s promos portray the Rajput community in bad light.

Earlier this month, Siddhrajsinh Mahavirsinh Chudasama had the same problem with Ram-Leela and had filed a petition. He had also claimed that the film shows women in a disrespectful manner.

Members of the Kshatriya community were part of a rally in Rajkot last Sunday where they burnt effigies of director Bhansali. Protests turned more violent after they ransacked a mall.

According to a report in The Times of India, the remonstration will continue until Bhansali apologises to the Kshatriyas and makes some changes in Ram-Leela’s dialogues according to their demands. Otherwise, the film will not be allowed to release in Gujarat, protestors said.

Do you think Ram-Leela shows the Rajput community in bad light?
