Padmavathi postponed indefinitely

Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Banasali epic Drama ‘Padmavathi’ is facing heat from all corners not it has got a strong punch from Central Board of Film Certification. Padmavathi has been facing the ire of right-wing groups for allegedly distorting history and demeaning the honor of the Rajput queen Rani Padmini. Even though Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been vocal in his denial of these charges

As we reported earlier Central Board of Film Certification has sent the film’s censor application back claiming that it was not filled completely. Now Due to the delay in Central Board of Film Certification, the film has been postponed.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures who is one of the producers has issued a statement that they were voluntarily deferred the release date of the film from December, 1st, 2017.” The new date will be revealed soon. Meanwhile, Deepika’s co-star Ranveer Singh, who plays the antagonist Alauddin Khilji, also stood by the film.

On the other hand, Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi had on Saturday slammed the filmmakers for allowing the film to be screened for various media channels before obtaining a certificate from the board.

Padmavati is all about the story of Alauddin Khilji who desired a Rajput queen Rani Padmavati. Padmavati was the queen of Chittor and she is believed to have killed herself rather than letting Khilji capture her.
