Jaipur: With the release date of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati approaching, its troubles seem to be mounting as well. After protests by the Karni Sena and also a Brahmin group, now the former royal family of Jaipur has opposed release of the film "if historical facts are distorted".

Former princess, Diya Kumari in a statement said that no film should hurt the sentiments of a community by "twisting historical facts".

Diya Kumari is a BJP MLA.

The director of the film Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali should not wrongly depict the story of Queen Padmavati of Chittor. He should get the facts in the film verified by a forum of historians and then release the film, she said in a statement.

Diya Kumari said that "Rajputs will not allow any distortion of the valiant history of Rajasthan and sacrifice of its people in fighting barbarians".

Diya Kumari said if the movie does not display authentic history or takes any liberties, it will not be allowed to be released.

The latest development comes as film distributors in Rajasthan have expressed unease over releasing the film, scheduled to hit the screens on December 1.

The Sri Rajput Karni Sena, an organization of the Rajput community, and the Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha, a Brahmin community organization, have decided to oppose the release of the film. According to them, historical facts have been distorted in the film.

The Sri Rajput Karni Sena, along with other organizations, had called for a Chittorgarh bandh on November 3. Along with like-minded organizations, the Karni Sena plans to organize a big rally in Gandhinagar in Gujarat on November 12 against the movie.
