Panaji: The Goa Police has stepped up security around theatres in the state for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial film Padmaavat.

Goa's Director General of Police Muktesh Chandar today said heavy security has been deployed outside theatres for the screening of the film.

The movie has been facing protests by the Karni Sena and other fringe groups over allegations that historical facts were distorted in it.

"We are keeping a watch and have deployed heavy police force around theatres and multiplexes which are screening the film 'Padmaavat'," the DGP told PTI.

"No violation of law and order would be tolerated. There are adequate arrangements in place," he said.

Chandar said there were no signs of any protests or demonstrations against the movie today so far but the police was leaving no stone unturned to maintain strict security.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had earlier said the film would not be banned in the state if it is cleared by the Censor Board.

He had also said that any attempt to disrupt law and order in the state would not be tolerated.

The film, starring Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is based on the saga of the 13th century battle between Maharawal Ratan Singh of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

The Supreme Court had paved the way for its nationwide release after some states issued notifications banning the film.
