Padmaavat Gets Green Signal: It Is All Set To Release In India On 25 January 2018

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati" has been surrounded by controversies and criticism ever since the making of the film was announced. From destroying the film sets to burning one of them and the Karni Sena member slapping the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in public, the film has been through a lot. After postponing the release of the film from December 1, the film finally has an official release date which is January 25, 2018. (inner goddess: yayayayayyayayyy) Here are a few important things that we all must know before we decide to buy the tickets and sit comfortably to watch the epic drama that has Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. 

Recent updates on the film's release 

Recently the film was banned in six different states of India namely: Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. But, the Supreme Court cleared all the claims and buzz and announced a stay on the ban. They also announced that the film will have an all clear India release on 25 January, 2018. 

Karni Sena's revolt 

They made every possible move to get the film banned but CBFC went through the entire film and suggested few changes to the makers. 

The name of the film has been changed 

The Censor Board wanted the name of the film, Padmavati, to be changed to Padmavat, which is the name of the poem that the script is based on. It is written by a Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi. 

Ghoomar will have certain revisions 

The film has been given a U/A Certificate but the song that took social media by storm and had Deepika dancing like a Rajasthani queen, Ghoomar, is expected to have a lot of revisions to fit the character of Rani Padmini. 

CBFC's final requirement 

While we are at it, let's get this straight. There were many reports which claimed different points but an article by Hindustan Times suggests that CBFC never wanted any cuts in the film and they only suggested five major modifications including the title of the film. 

Here's what various people in the industry had said when the cuts were suggested 

Rajeev Masand took to Twitter and shared his view on the final decision that has come out. 

Pant's rant 

Comedian and entertainer Sorabh Pant took a direct dig and shared what he felt after the news broke on the Internet.
