Secondly, the title of the movie was asked to be changed from Padmavati to Padmavat, given the filmmakers have attributed their material/creative source to the fictional poem Padmavat and not history. But owing to massive protests and threats from the Rajput outfits, and some objections from the censor board, the film's release date was pushed for indefinite period. "We also demand his resignation", said Karni Sena leader Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi during a press conference.
Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the Central Board of Film Certification may have reached a truce but there seems to be no respite for the makers of Padmavati (now Padmavat) as a nationwide protest led by Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena has reportedly begun today.
Akshay Kumar said, "I am clueless what is happening... with clash". In fact, the actor has advanced its release date from January 26 to January 25.
President of Rajput Sabha Giriraj Singh Lotwara said that it was unfortunate that the board wants to favour the film producers instead of considering recommendations of the panel that reviewed the film. "If the historical is also released around the same time, it won't be an issue for this film". I am also looking forward to see it. Meanwhile, if Padmavat arrives on February 9, it will have a domino effect on movies such as Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Pari.
But even before the first footsteps of the Rajasthani Queen, Padmavati (Deepika Padukone), her royal husband, Raja Rawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor), and their nemesis Allaudin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) are heard, the Hindi film industry has already started feeling the tremors. Padmavat has been mounted on a Rs 190-crore budget, while Pad Man marks the production debut of Twinkle Khanna.
The recent grapevine has it that Padmavati is scheduled to release on February 9. It is directed by Prosit Roy. The film has been shot on a grand scale and the trailer got a fab response from public. Lokendra Singh Kalvi, chief of Shri Rajput Karni Sena, has called upon the community members to push for a complete ban on Padmavati, reports NDTV.
