Noted director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi will Thursday meet a parliamentary panel to discuss the controversy surrounding Bollywood movie ‘Padmavati’.

“It is true that there is a meeting between the CBFC and Bhansali regarding ‘Padmavati’ called by a parliamentary panel today,” PTI quoted a source in the censor board as saying.

The 30-member parliamentary panel, which includes actor-MPs like Paresh Rawal and Raj Babbar, has also asked the producers of the movie and officials of the information and broadcasting ministry to attend the meeting and brief it on the furore related to the film. “The panel has asked Mr Bhansali and Mr Joshi to appear before it and present their views on the movie. They can present their case before the panel. The members have also decided to call the producers of the movie,” chairman of the panel Anurag Thakur told PTI on Tuesday.
