Her 5-0 win put her on course for a potentially exciting final against Shashi Chopra.Shashi, who was crowned the World Youth Champion recently and is fighting her first elite championship, came through her round with equal ease. She toyed with Saloni Shah (Maharashtra), showing her usual aggression and speed before winning 4-1.Sarita too showed her class in the lightweight category, beating Muthulakshmi (Tamil Nadu) without much of an effort. In fact, she was so effective in the squared ring that the referee had to stop the contest in the first round itself. 'Padmavat', will not be released in cinema halls across the desert state.
