It seems controversy period for Padmaavat comes to an end. The cinema will finally hit screens on January 25. This Deepika, Shahid and Ranveer starrer has been in the news and controversies from the beginning.
Earlier, the makers had postponed the movie from its original release date December 1, 2017 due to wide spread protests across the country. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone had received death threats too and prize money on their heads.
Announcing the new release date, all the three actors, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh took to their Twitter handles and shared an updated poster of Padmaavat.
Viacom18 Motion Pictures announced that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus is all set for a worldwide January 25 release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, adding that the period drama will be the first Indian film to get a global IMAX 3D release.
Sudhanshu Vats, Group CEO, Viacom18, said in a statement, “Padmaavat is a cinematic masterpiece in every sense of the word. We hope that we will surpass the expectations of our fans from across the world. We are humbled with the immense support we have received from the government authorities, the Central Board of Film Certification and the entire film fraternity. Padmaavat is a story that’s inherently Indian in its context, ethos and values. In the past, international filmmakers have presented Indian stories such as Gandhi, Life of Pi, The Jungle Book and others to the world. We believe that this is the right time for us to truly make in India and show the world a tale that every Indian is proud of.”
