Gurgaon mall cancels Padmaavat screening as a ploy

To mislead miscreants protesting against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmaavat, Gurgaon's Ambience Mall recently pasted cancellation circulars of the movie at the mall.

This move by the mall's PVR staff comes a day after the city witnessed violent protests against the movie. However, the circulations were just a ploy to avoid any violence and the movie was screened as scheduled.

The notice at the mall read, "Dear guests, the screening of the movie Padmaavat has been cancelled."
