"Considering the threats from the Karni Sena and other fringe Rajput groups, we are thinking of giving security cover to Joshi whose visit to Jaipur on Thursday coincides with the release of the film", a ministry official said.

"We will take strict action against the perpetrators. January 25 may come and go but we won't let the film release, come what may", Kalvi said.

Meanwhile, Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said on Tuesday that most theatre owners in the state had voluntarily made a decision to not screen controversial Bollywood film "Padmaavat" as he emphasised that the state government was trying its best to maintain law and order.

Many multiplexes have reportedly refused to run the movie fearing vandalism. The apex court directed all state governments and not us. Speaking to journalists in Rajkot, Kalvi warned movie buffs and said that if they are keen to watch the movie, they should watch it on the internet 10 days after of its release.

"If screening of the film is not stopped, members of our community will not stop from demolishing screens in theatres", Kalvi had said.

"I respect the ethos of non-violence propagated by Mahatma Gandhi". The Ahmedabad police have registered six FIRs against 100 people. Home minister Gulab Chand Kataria said that erstwhile Mewar royal Arvind Singh was among the panel of three people who had watched the film.

The Supreme Court had earlier paved the way for the all- India release of Padmaavat on January 25 and stayed notifications and orders issued by Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat - all ruled by the BJP - prohibiting exhibition of the film in their states.

From 5 cuts to the change in the title to Deepika's midriff getting covered in the "Ghoomar" song, Bhansali has compromised on a whole lot for the movie to get released without any hassles.

Demonstrations were held outside cinema theatres and on roads in several towns across the State, where the protesters raised slogans and demanded an apology from Mr. Bhansali.
