Supreme Court gave green signal to  pan-India release of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film 'Padmaavat', but Rajput outfits and leaders shown their anger and  on Thursday warned that releasing the controversial film will have serious consequences. 

Here are the reactions: 

Reiterating their demand for banning its release, a protester from the Chhattisgarh Rajput community said, ''Ye antim chetaawni hai usko iss baar khamiyaza bhugatna padega. Maharani Padmavati hamari aan baan shaan ki pratik hai aur agar Chhattisgarh mein film laga to iska khamiaza bhugatna padega. Jahan Padmaavat chalega wo cinema ghar jalega.'' (This is our last warning. We won't allow anyone to play with the dignity of Queen Padmavati, whom we hold with highest regard. All those cinema halls, which will screen the movie, will be set ablaze.)

Lokendra Singh Kalvi, Rajput Karni Sena Chief said in Ujjain, ''I urge all the social organisations to block the release of the film. Padmaavat should not be allowed to run in cinema halls. I urge all the people to create a curfew-like situation outside cinema halls screening the film.''

Suraj Pal Amu, the politician from Haryana who had earlier threatened to burn down any movie theatre that screened Bhansali's Padmaavat, too warned of serious consequences, saying the SC ruling has hurt the sentiments of the Rajput community members. 

''Aaj Supreme Court ne lakhon-crore logon, lakhon-crore Hinduon ki bhavnaon ko thes pahuchai hai, jo SC ka samman karte hain. Hamara sangharsh jaare rahega chaahe mujhe faansi laga do! Ye film release hogi toh desh tootega,'' Suraj Pal Amu said.
