The producers of Padmaavat breathed a sigh of relief as Supreme Court has given a big decision on the film. The film will release on January 25.
The Examining Committee of the CBFC passed the film with a UA certificate subject to some cuts and the alteration of title of the film from Padmavati to Padmavat. Other key modifications include the use of disclaimers, particularly one clarifying the practice of Sati is not being glorified.
One other demand of the censor board was that the filmmakers hide Deepika Padukone’s waist in the song Ghoomar.
The makers of Padmaavat have replaced the earlier Ghoomar song with CGI to cover Deepika Padukone’s midriff in it. This step is taken after the Karni Sena members raised objection over the song.
Here’s the edited Ghoomar song:
The film stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh.
The film that was all set to take on PadMan at the box office will also now release solo on January 25 after Bhansali put in a request with Akshay and made a joint statement that PadMan will now release on 9th February.
