Padmavat Gets Release Date To Clash With Pad Man On January 25

Talking to reporters here, AICC spokesperson Raj Babbar said, "the Central Board for film certification, which comes under the Central Government, has given a clearance to the film 'Padmavat".

CBFC, in consultation with a special advisory panel, saw the movie last month and made a decision to grant the film a U/A certificate with five modifications, including changing of the film's title to "Padmavat", in December previous year. The film's release date was recently confirmed as January 25.

Addressing reporters, National Convenor of the Karni Sena, Lokendra Singh Kalvi said they will financially harm the producer of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali and said their demand now was a ban on the film.

Deepika Padukone plays the role of Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor seen in the role of Maharaja Ratan Singh role and Ranvir Singh plays Alauddin Khilji role.

There will be curfew if this film is released, he threatened. They have too short a time before the release, plus there are hurdles for it as certain states have announced a blanket ban, and the Karni Sena continues to oppose the movie.

Padmavat film release on 25 January along with Padman starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.

Vasundhara Raje on Monday said Padmavati, now rechristened Padmavat, will not be released in cinema halls across the desert state. "We will not allow her dignity to be hurt howsoever", the CM said in a statement.

Parrikar also said that the state police had expressed apprehensions about the film being screened in Goa during the peak tourism season in December, when a significant chunk of the uniformed personnel are busy discharging law and order duties.

The report further read that Padmavat director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been instructed to delete all references to Delhi, Chittorgarh and Mewar from the film and that "buzz is that they (the modifications) have resulted in as many as 300 cuts".
