Amid the row over Karni Sena threatening to halt the release of "Padmaavat", Delhi police chief spokesperson Deependra Pathak has assured the security of cinema halls in the national capital, saying the film will release hassle-free.

Delhi Police will maintain security at all cinema halls. We are constantly in touch with cinema hall management and the people living in those areas. We believe film will release here hassle-free: Deependra Pathak, Delhi Police Chief Spokesperson #Padmaavatpic.twitter.com/GKITpvaQbm
The protestors have also called for ''Janta curfew'' and took out a massive rally in Dholpur of Rajasthan to demand a countrywide ban on the film.
Protestors of Karni Sena have also threatened of mass immolation if the film is not banned.
On Thursday, Karni Sena protestors vandalised a cinema hall in Muzaffarpur, Bihar after the apex court ruled in Padmaavat's favour.
Earlier banned in four states -- Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana --Padmaavat received U/A certificate from Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after modifications suggested by the panel and will now release on January 25.
