It has been close to six months now since Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat hit the theatres, but lead actor Deepika Padukone continues to receive immense love and admiration for her royal outing as queen Padmavati.

Padmavat has been cleared for release; its attempted censorship and ban comes from non-state actors and Vasundhara Raje’s decision to block its release in Rajasthan out of respect to the ‘sentiments of the people’ is meek acquiescence to these non-state actors.

According to the film’s distributor in Sri Lanka, the island country’s Prime Minister wants to watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, to see what the fuss is about.

At least 96 persons were arrested outside the Mumbai offfice of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on Friday where members of Karni Sena had gathered to protest against the release of Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat.

Padmavat is expected to release on January 25. Rajasthan government has refused to screen the film in the state despite CBFC clearance.

Padmavat is expected to release on January 25. Censor board chief Prasoon Joshi has dismissed reports that the body had suggested 300 cuts in the film, saying they have only advised five modifications.

As the biggies Padman and Padmavat get ready to fight it out at the box office on January 25, Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary has decided to delay release. The film will release on Feb 9.

Demanding the film to be banned across the country, Karni Sena also questioned the permission given to Sanjay Leela Bhansali to screen the film in UK.

Vani Tripathi Tikkoo stressed that the CBFC has only suggested few modifications in the movie, including changing the title to Padmavat, after which it would be given a UA certificate.

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has come out in support of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati, which has been mired in controversies ever since the shoot started.
