Sanjay Leela Bhansali film “Padmavati” who could be released on 8 December 2017 but because of Krishna Senna controversy and non-clearance CBFC certificate the makers of the film postponed its releasing date and now they announced Padmavati releasing date which is 9 of February 2018.
The most controversial movie of the year 2017 ‘Padmavati‘starring Deepak Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.This movie is still banned in 5 states including Gujarat, Madhya Pardesh, Utter Pardesh, Rajasthan and Bihar.
While their government said that if the movie got its CBFC ( censor board of film certificate) this movie will not be on-screening in their states by which the makers of the film can now earned the half of their possible income.
Although the budget of the movie is 1080 crore which means they have to cross 300 crore to make this movie blockbuster hit, even though they sell their music and satellite rights in 80 crore and theatrical rights in 110 crore.
Padmavati going to be clash with another movie of Anushka Sharma “Pari.” Now we can see Padmavatimade a toughest competition but still we find some confusing situations regarding its releasing date.
Bollywood celebrities also expressed their anger towards Krishna Senna protests, though CBFC made some changes in this film to avoid those issues which makes the violence between Bollywood industry and Political party.
This is the first time that the CBFC has been made to work under so much pressure and hire independent panelists besides those 200 members to view a film- said a CBFC member.
Meanwhile the maker of Padmavati is unlikely to wait much longer for theatrical release after the changes are incorporated. While Padmavati team itself want some more time to market the film in a positive light.
A big film would need a two to three week window at the box office so it would make a sense that Padmavati release by9-February-2017.padmavati is basically based on the epic poem “Padma vat” (1540) by Malik Muhammad jayasi.
The story of Padmavati narrated the legendary Rajput Queen who committed “JAUHAR” to protect herself from ruthless Muslim king. Padmavati is one of the expensive Indian film ever made by Sanjey Leela Bhansali. Mr. Gupta said he would be able to give his opinion on the period drama after watching.
