"Padmavati" has been embroiled in controversy over threats from the Rajput Karni Sena, as well as hold ups with incomplete paperwork submitted to the Indian film censor board, CBFC.
While the big budget entertainer would have enjoyed a solo release on 1 December, there is little hope of it seeing the light of the day this year. BBFC has passed Padmavati for its official release on December 1 in the United Kingdom.
While Sanjay Leela Bhansali's highly anticipated epic drama Padmavati is facing issues for its release in India, the film has been successfully certified by the British Board of Film Certification (BBFC) without a single cut.
First, Gujarat and a slew of other states have already banned the film's release. The court will hear the case on Tuesday. Films like S Durga and Nude were not allowed to screen at IFFI and this is something we have to question.
Previously, Haryana BJP's Chief Media Coordinator, Suraj Pal Amu was offering a reward of INR 10 crore for beheading the film's lead actor Deepika Padukone and director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
On this, Viacom18 pictures say that there are having no plans to release the movie globally without the movie is being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification. A complainant Bhawani Shankar Sharma said that the court of additional Cheif Metropolitan Magistrate while accepting the complaint has clearly said that they will record the statement on November 27 under the section 200of Cr.P.C.
