Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said today that while it was his duty to comply with the Supreme Court order and provide security for the screening of "Padmaavat", "it will be good" if someone decided not to screen the film.

"If someone decides not to screen the film it will be good but if someone screens the film, they will be provided security. It is our duty to comply with Supreme Court's order," the Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said.
