‘Padmavati’ to release as ‘Padmavat’ on January 25

The film has got U/A certificate, say sources in Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial Hindi film Padmavati, which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, will release on January 25 as Padmavat.

“It will release as Padmavat on January 25. The film has got U/A certificate,” sources in Viacom18 Motion Pictures told IANS.

Padmavati — now Padmavat — was earlier slated for release on December 1 but got stuck after the Karni Sena claimed that the film distorted historical facts related to the Rajput community.
