Most Controversial Film Joins February Race
After Censor Board gave a go for this movie, now reports are coming about the possible release date. While some organisations belonging to Rajputs have already warned of creating a ruckus if the film releases ever, latest update coming from Sanjay Bhansali camp is that the film will hit cinemas in next month.
Trade circles are now getting information that February 9th will be the tentative release date of “Padmavat” movie. Yes, the movie lost that ‘i’ in the title after Censor Board laid condition to give U/A certificate only after that change is made. Very soon promotions will be kick-started by Deepika, Shahid Kapoor and Ranvir Singh for the film.
Directed and produced by Sanjay Bhansali with a whopping budget of 120+ crores, the film narrates the story of Rani Padmavati whose husband Ratansen suffered defeat at Allauddin Khilji’s hands and how she committed suicide later to avoid getting exploited by the victorious enemy.
There is no historical evidence for the story but some prominent writers like Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s wrote this story in 1540. This Sanjay Bhansali film is based on Padmavat poem conceptualised by this writer.
Cut to box office, there are no big releases other than Anushka Sharma’s another production venture “Pari” on that date. So on Feb 9th, we may see two-star heroines clashing in cinemas.
