Even though the historical Hindi magnum opus, ‘Padmaavat’ has been subjected to so many difficulties to have a release finally, protests are still being witnessed outside theatres screening the movie at some places. In a bizarre incident, some overenthusiastic BJP party men held a protest outside the theatre screening ‘Bhaagamathie’ thinking that ‘Padmaavat’ was being screened.
The awkward incident was witnessed in Tamil Nadu, outside a theatre in Erode. Since both ‘Bhaagamathie’ and ‘Padmaavat’ were being screened in the city (in different theatres), the protesters got confused Bhaagamathie for Padmaavat and started a dharna outside the thaetre. They realized their embarrassing blunder and walked away only after being informed by the theatre management that its the Anushka-starrer but not the Deepika-Ranveer starrer film.
Fortunately, despite these protests, Padmaavat is performing exceptionally well at worldwide box office.
