Padmaavat poster expresses the controversy in detail
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

On Sunday makers of Padmaavat announced to come with a new trailer which actually did not have any new footage rather a new title and release date. Posters of Padmaavat were shared online on Sunday which stated that film will now officially release on 25 January in 3D, IMAX 3D and Telugu and Tamil. The exhibitor poster of the film has all the elements written in details to save the film from controversy. This poster states that there is no dream sequence between Queen Padmini and Sultan Allaudin Khilji nor there ever was.

No film poster in the recent history looks so scared, the poster also states that film is not based on the real queen but a sufi poetry of Malik Mohammad Jayasi which is titled Padmaavat. All these things are suppose to come under the disclaimer which is shown before the film to get rid of all the pre-conceived notions audience might be having about the story. Poster of the film is not suppose to say that, “We have made this film as an ode to the famed valour, legacy and courage of rajputs”. It is neither duty nor responsibility of any film maker to justify his/her intention of putting out this story.

Poster also states that, ” The film portrays Rani Padmavati with utmost respect and does not tarnish her repute or misrepresent her character in any manner”. Since the film has been attacked furiously by radical protest groups who have taken it upon themselves to take other people’s lives by putting a bounty on their heads, makers of the film are just 2 bad days away from publishing their script in a newspaper in order to make people understand their entire film even before it is released. Film has been banned in many states such as Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh hence makers are trying their level best that it releases in rest of India with certain grace.
