Tight security keeps Karni Sena at bay as 'Padmaavat' releases peacefully

After a prolonged battle, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's $30 million period epic "Padmaavat" opened across most of India onThursday. The city police, which had turned the release venues into security bastions, are going to maintain the bandobast for at least three more days. While a group of protesters brandished swords and burn tyres in Muzaffarpur in Bihar, several shops were vandalised in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

In Mumbai - the home of India's Bollywood film industry - police rounded up 50 people affiliated to a hardline Hindu group after protesters set auto tyres ablaze during an angry demonstration late Tuesday.

Multiplex Association of India has announced the they will not be releasing "Padmaavat" on their theater screens in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Goa and Madhya Pradesh, following which the Udaipur District Administration has also issued a formal circular, banning the "Ghumar" song.

The film finally released today, the 25th of January.

In Gurugram, hundreds of violent protesters took to roads, torching vehicles and destroying public property and attacked a school bus with children onboard. In Muzaffarnagar and Meerut too the film has been screened but there were very small number of people who came to watch "Padmaavat".

That was the second splash of the day for Milwaukee, which also acquired outfielder Christian Yelich from the Miami Marlins. No, it wasn't with Eric Hosmer , but rather Alcides Escobar. "I think we're always exploring trying to get better".

The petitioner said that by allowing the Karni Sena to "disturb peace", the Supreme Court's order which had stayed the ban on "Padmaavat", had been violated. They also pelted stones at the Haryana police personnel deployed on the Gurugram-Alwar National Highway, injuring a few policemen.

'Padmaavat been through so much.

Bhansali did a good job, he delivered the utmost work from his side and just like he does in every movie, he once again presented us a larger than life show.

Expressing confidence that the film would do wonders at box office, she said, 'it's time for us to celebrate and see the film do wonders at box office.

In the territories where it will enjoy an unfettered release, "Padmaavat" will have the benefit of a solo run as Sony's female hygiene drama "Padman", starring Akshay Kumar, postponed their release to February 9.
