    Upendra Singh Rathore, climbed a 350 feet tall mobile tower with a bottle of petrol in Rajasthan's Bhilwara as mark of protest. The protester is saying 'will come down only when Padmaavat is banned in the country', according to ANI.

    Meanwhile, Rajput Karni Sena staged protest in Jaipur against screening of 'Padmaavat'. A protestor said, "We are confident that no cinema hall will screen the film and if someone does they should be ready to bear the consequences. Consider it a warning or request."

    Owing to historical "inaccuracies" in "Padmaavat" starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh - states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Haryana had initially called for a ban on the film. But, much to the relief of the filmmaker and the distributors, the Supreme Court allowed a country-wide release of the controversial movie on January 25.

    Subsequently, the Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan Governments have moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of the order which lifted the ban on the movie Padmaavat. Both governments have said owing to law and order problems and sentiments, the movie cannot be screened in their respective states.
