With the way things stand, "Padmavati" is expected to release in early 2018.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial film "Padmavati" has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) for the United Kingdom audience for release without a single cut. However, the movie got cleared by the United Kingdom censor board and that too without any single cut, but they are just waiting for the censor board clearance in India and till then the makers will not release the movie anywhere.
The website also has a note for parents that says, "Some versions of this film are displayed in the 3D or IMAX format and some younger children may find them a more intense experience". The BBFC made it clear that the film contains moderate violence and injury detail.
First, Gujarat and a slew of other states have already banned the film's release. The apex court has asked Sharma to file a writ petition over his fresh plea by November 28 and listed the matter for hearing on that day.
The 190-crore film's release in India, also slated for December 1, has been delayed because of a litany of controversies, mainly protests by Rajput groups who allege that their legendary queen has been depicted falsely. The Central Board of Film Certification has not yet certified the movie and the apex court could not inject a statutory body from doing its duty. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali "s film 'Padmavati" is not taking the name of the shortage of problems.
The Deepika Padukone Shahid Kapoor starrer has been cleared for a scheduled release in the United Kingdom on December 1.
