At Jyoti Cinema in Muzaffarpur's Mithanpura, around 30-40 activists of the Shree Rajput Karni Sena gathered around 2pm and ransacked the theatre, which is slated to screen Padmaavat from January 25.

The protesters pelted stones, tore the posters at a single screen, and raised slogans against theatre owner against screening the movie.

"Yeh to sirf trailer hai, pura picture baki hai (This is just a trailer, wait for the full film)," they shouted while vandalising the ticket counters at the cinema hall.

The Karni Sena has been protesting against the movie in Patna and several other places in Bihar over the past couple of months.

Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court struck down the ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat and ensured its all-India release. The ban was imposed by four states - Rajasthan, Haryana, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh - despite the film being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
