The most talked about and controversial film of this era, Padmavati renamed to Padmaavat, is officially set to release on January 25. The historical drama directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali had gone through a lot of controversies — be it death threat to Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone to damaging the property on the set.
From the moment, the trailer of the film was released on the social networking site, it has been engulfed into one controversy or the other because of which the release date of the film was postponed from December 1.
However, the talk about the film has not died down and with Karni Sena demanding a complete ban on the film, the filmmakers issued a full page disclaimer advertisement.
Here’s what the disclaimer reads.
“The film ‘Padmaavat’ is based on the epic ‘Padmavat’ by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi which is a revered work of fiction.
The film does not have and never had a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati.
We have made this film as an ode to the famed valour, legacy and courage of Rajputs.
The film portrays Rani Padmavati with utmost respect and does not tarnish her repute or misrepresent her character in any manner.
The film has been cleared with only five modifications by the CBFC and is officially approved for release in India with a U/A certificate.
There are no further cuts or modifications to the film.
We are grateful to the government authorities, CBFC, film fraternity and our fans for their support.”
I just feel bad for the poster designer of Padmaavat who was called for one more round of annoying changes.
