Kataria is learn to have discussed the possibility of a law and order situation if the movie was released in the state.

With the Supreme Court dismissing the petition seeking a stay on the release of movie Padmavati, the Haryana Government has said that it would approach the Censor Board to seek a ban on the upcoming Bollywood film.

Apart from Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, "Padmavati" also feature Jim Sharb and Aditi Rao Hydari in pivotal roles.

Earlier in January, Bhansali was attacked and the film's set was vandalised while it was being shot in Rajasthan.
