'Padmaavat' to release in Uttar Pradesh; not in Gujarat & Madhya Pradesh

Deepika Padukone in Padmavati

Despite incorporating the suggested changes by Central Board of Film Certification, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat", originally titled Padmavati, was unable to receive a nod from BJP-ruled states Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Ban: As much as 5 Indian states, Rajasthan, Bihar, UP, MP and Gujarat have banned Padmavati's release and a few states like Haryana, Jharkhand and Maharashtra are still pondering over the fact whether to release the film or not.

Starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh & Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, the film will also be released in Tamil and Telugu, in addition to Hindi.

There must have been many other celebrities present in the pre-release screening but no other has shared their opinions about the film which is never the case with such a big film.

The movie was mired in controversy after various Rajput groups, including Rajput Karni Sena, raised their objections towards the content of the film. The movie was previously slated for a release on December 1, 2017, which got deferred.

The mother, who police say jumped off an overpass on I-485 shortly afterwards, is the suspect in the case. Christina Treadway worked as a Panthers' gameday employee; her motivation in the killing remains unclear.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures announced 25th January 2018 as the worldwide release date of "Padmaavat".

In the advertisement that makers thanked the Government authorities, the CBFC, film fraternity and the fans for their constant support.

So are you excited about Padmaavat release?

"Real cities are mentioned but their geographical and historical accuracy is questionable in the film.Some of these places mentioned did not exist during the 14 century.So we've asked for disclaimer regarding the use of names of places". Amidst all the violence and agitation on the surface as the movie is nearing its release date, states are being extra cautious about the audience's reaction. And this could pose a problem for the two films that will roll out in theatres during the extended Republic Day holiday weekend. Currently, "Padmaavat's" only competition at the box office is Akshay Kumar's PadMan, produced by Twinkle Khanna.
