Indian police detain dozens protesting against controversial movie

The incidents of arson coincided with the visit of Rajput Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi, who is spearheading the protests against the movie across the country.

One would imagine that the release of the film would mean that the team can heave a sigh of relief.

"We have made a request through a letter to theatre owners for not screening the film".

Violence over the film, "Padmaavat", reached the outskirts of India's capital just as New Delhi began to receive southeast Asian leaders for a major summit on Thursday, to be followed the next day by a parade and celebrations of India's Republic Day. The movie has gotten great online reception, and if it is allowed to release smoothly, it could do great business.

There were protests reported in Mathura, the Delhi-Jaipur Highway, Meerut, Lucknow, Gurugram, Jammu and outside Chittorgarh Fort in Rajasthan, among several other cities.

Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh play the roles of Padmavati and Sultan Alauddin Khalji in the film produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. "We are adamant on our stand that this film Padmavaat should be banned, there should be a self-imposed curfew by people".

"The government should either ban the film, or give us the permission to kill ourselves", one of the women told Indian broadcaster Times Now. The women are not in favour of watching Padmaavat and say that they support the decision of preventing movie halls from screening the film.
