Padmavat gets a release date, set to clash with Akshay Kumar’s PadMan on January 25

Padmavat, that was earlier called Padmavati, can finally now release on Jan 25, and will clash with Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan. Padmavat was scheduled  to release on Dec 1, 2017 however the film landed into an argument with a group named Rajput Karni Sena raising objections to the portrayal of the queen in the film. numerous political and religious groups later joined the protests objecting to the film’s content saying it damaged the image of the Rajput culture.

Padmavat, as it is now being known as, was screened for a special bench of historians who recommended 5 modifications including the amendment in the title from Padmavati to Padmavat. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film is claimed to be inspired by malik Muhammad Jayasi’s Padmavat and stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles.

The film was cleared by CBFC some weeks past with a UA certificate. CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi had aforesaid that they the board had asked the makers to “add a disclaimer that clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the follow of Sati or seeks to glorify it”. Joshi had aforesaid these recommended changes “are completely in agreement with the filmmakers — the producers and director of the film”. conceding to those suggestions by the CBFC, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film will now be named as Padmavat.

The film’s trailer was applauded by all but the controversies began shortly after. The Rajput Karni Sena objected to the way Deepika’s character was represented in the film. Multiple death threats were issued against the film maker and lead actor Deepika.

It was being speculated that the film will clash with PadMan however when Akshay Kumar was asked regarding the same, he said, “Every film has the proper to release whenever they need, and I am happy for them.” the release of those 2 films are going to be followed by Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary that stars Sidharth Malhotra.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the producers of the film are yet to release a statement on the same. With the release of 3 big films on the Republic Day weekend, the audience can certainly have a gala time at the films.
