Despite receiving clearance from the government, Kedarnath banned in Uttarakhand!

Swami Darshan Bharti of Garhwal had demanded that the film should be banned.

After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat invited the wrath of Hindu extremist groups earlier this year, Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath is Bollywood's latest offering that has enraged far-right groups in the country who have unanimously called for a ban on the film citing the glorification of love-jihad in the movie reportedly.

Keeping in view the objections, the state government had formed a committee headed by Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj and comprising Home Secretary Nitesh Kumar Jha, Director General of Police Anit Ratoori and Tourism Secretary Dilip Jawalkar.

While there has been no official ban on the film by the state government, it has written to all district magistrates (DMs) about the film and the controversies surrounding it. Kedarnath is the debut movie of Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara.

Set against the backdrop of the 2013 deluge, the film, which depicts the love story of a Muslim porter and a Hindu girl on a pilgrimage to Kedarnath, releases Friday. Previously, the Supreme Court came down heavily on individual states against opting for a blanket ban across states according to the whims of state governments.

Those seeking a ban on the film accused it of hurting Hindu sentiments and alleged that it was promoting love jihad. The committee members watched the movie and met Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Thursday evening, a day before its release. We are not the censor board. The High Court said Bharti should go to the District Magistrate of Rudraprayag with his complaint. "State shall ensure law and order is maintained".

Uttarakhand and Bombay High Court had both refused to ban the film.
