Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Deppika Padukone starrer might not release on the 1st of December, 2017 afterall. The producers of the film Viacom 18 Network have announced that the film will not release until the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) India clears the Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati with a certificate. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film which also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles has been under the scanner for its issues with the Rajput Karni Sena.
Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati has been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati revolves around the life of Rani Padmavati played by Deepika Padukone and how she endures Alauddin Khilji’s (Ranveer Singh) invasion of her husband’s (Shahid Kapoor) kingdom. The Rajput Karni Sena believes the facts of the lives of Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) has been distorted with and show her in a bad light which led them to vandalizing the sets of Padmavati while Sanjay Leela Bhansali was shooting in Jaipur with the whole crew including Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The film maker and Deepika Padukone have received open death threats for as much as 5 Crores being offered to the person who beheads any one of them. However, amidst all this issue the CBFC head Prasoon Joshi has sighted ‘incomplete application’ as the reason for not issuing a certificate to the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Padmavati.
Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh starrer Padmavati has been delayed till further notice from CBFC
Padmavati film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone have been subjected to a lot of hostility from the Karni Sena and other leaders. Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor’s director and co-stars have been given open death threats and as much as 5 Crores was offered to the one who beheads them. To top that off Surajpal Amu (BJP chief media coordinator) doubled the bounty on Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ranveer Singh was also not spared and Surajpal threatened to break his legs for his portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati. The BJP governments of Gujrat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh all have asked for the delay in the release of Shahid Kapoor starrer Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.
