The Rajasthan government has constituted a panel to screen Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati before its release in the state, Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said Friday.

“My committee will study which points in the movie are different from historical facts and present its report. It will watch it once and consider each point over which people are angry. Nothing should be communicated (in the movie) which infuriates people,” Kataria told reporters here, stating that “no one should take law in their hands.”
