'PADMAVAT' NOT TO RELEASE ON JANUARY 26, 2018 FACES LIMITATIONS

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial is all set to hit the big screen sooner than we expected. After 26 cuts and a change of name, 'Padmavati', now 'Padmavat' is all set to hit cinemas January 25, 2018. But, with all the controversies wrapped around the film, it is now bound to face some limitations. Ever since its first glimpse, the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena (RRKS) members have been totally against the film. The members of the Rajput community claim that the movie has portrayed their queen in poor light. Hence, despite the decision by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on the film, the members demanded a complete ban across the country.

Furthermore, Scindia said: "The sacrifice by Queen Padmini (also known as Padmavati) is a matter of honor and respect for all of us and hence we will not allow anyone to show disrespect to this honor." In her statements, she clearly represents the interest of the entire Rajput community. The outcome of the controversies faced by Padmavati is also evident in other states. Gujarat, Utter Pradesh, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh have also banned the film from showing in cinemas. After five states have put a ban on the film, it is also expected to compete with Akshay Kumar's 'Padman' on the box office which is set to release on the Republic day of India, January 26, 2018. Padmavati Although both films have different themes and genre, the big question is; will the odds be in favor of 'Padmavat' filmmakers or 'Padman' filmmakers? That we all have to patiently wait for the box office to tell.
