MUMBAI: Star actor Dipika Padukone’s controversial film Padmavati has finally been approved to be screened on January 25.
Indian media reported quoting sources in Viacom18 Motion Pictures that the movie will be released in the last week of January with a slight change in title.
“It will release as Padmavat on January 25. The film has got U/A certificate. ”
Padmavati was earlier scheduled for release on December 1, but the studio had to delay it amid the controversy the film stirred up in sections of the country.
The movie is starring Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
The Shree Rajput Karni Sena alleged the movie for distorting historical facts related to the Rajput community. The group has been persistent in its demand for a ban on the movie ever since.
