Simi Garewal Steps In To Mediate For Padmavati With Maharani Padmini Devi Of Jaipur

Padmavati

In a surprising and delightfully hope-giving move, the very elegant Simi Garewal, a self-proclaimed diehard fan of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s cinema, has stepped forward  to mediate  peace  with the highly influential Maharani Padmini of Jaipur on behalf  of the beleaguered Padmavati team.

Informed  sources tell  us that Simi, a long-standing friend  of  the Maharani took  it on herself to broker peace for  Bhansali

And  the results are very encouraging.The Karni Sena which is  enormously deferential to Maharani Padmini is  expected to be summoned by the Maharani any time in  the near future for a peace plan.

Apparently  the  Maharani  , herself an admirer  of Bhansali’s cinema, has expressed misgivings only about Rani Padmavati being shown dancing  in the Ghoomar song.

In a  long conversation that lasted nearly an hour, the Maharani  told Simi that the Ghoomar did not exist during the time of Rani Padmavati and even if artistic  licence permits such time travel  for  the sake  of  aesthetic gratification , Maharanis would  not dance in public as shown  in the film.

Says Simi, “Yes, like everyone who cares for Sanjay Bhansali’s cinema , and I care deeply, I spoke  to the Maharani .She exercises  tremendous clout over cultural  developments  in Jaipur.She said  there was basically one problematic  point  in the trailer and that was  theGhoomar. There  is actually  no other problem.”
Simi now intends  to organize  a meeting  between Maharani Padmini and  Sanjay Bhansali.

During the meeting Bhansali  who has met  the Maharani  in the past is  expected to  discuss the  film’s content with the Maharani .Thereafter she  will be shown the  film at a private screening.

“Once  the Maharani approves the  protests will automatically  die down,” says Simihopefully.
