‘Padmavati’ one of the most awaited movies of its times. The film which is based on a hypothetical beauty marks its existence only in poems of that era. The film features Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharaja Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Allauddin Khilji.
As the movie is already facing the criticism and ban, the hope of getting its release date is now again becoming a challenge itself. Erstwhile royals of Mewar are over their stand over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati and refuse to accept the movie with the modifications claimed by CBFC.
After months of protests and heated debates over the burning Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali finally was getting some respite as Padmavati was finally certified with a ‘U/A’ rating by the CBFC, but Mewar royals are unhappy with CBFC’s move.
Arvind Singh Mewar, who was a part of the Mewar penal, expressed his dissatisfaction with the move.
It is not the matter that how many cuts the movie asked by CBFC, the matter is how accurate the movie is historical.
