Maverick director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has to battle alot about his next film which has been titled Padmavati. The film has been occupied with a series of controversies and the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was not much bothered in chopping off many interesting episodes from the film. The movie’s title too has been asked to be changed to Padmavat which did not go well with the makers. Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are the lead actors in the film. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is not in a mood to compromise about the film’s content and he challenged the revising committee regarding the censor board’s decision.
Now the inside news is that the makers are keen on releasing the film on January 25th during the Republic Day Weekend. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is in plans to complete all the formalities by this weekend and announce the release date during the holiday season. However this came as a huge shock to the makers of Akshay Kumar’s Padman and Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary which have been announced for release during the holiday weekend. Padmavat has been produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Films. More details to be out soon.
