Ranveer Singh, who is playing Sultan Allaudin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial epic Padmaavat took to twitter with rest of the cast including Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor and shared the official new poster of Padmaavat. Film was earlier titled Padmavati but censor board asked the makers to change the name in order to base it completely upon 16th century sufi poetry of Malik Mohammad Jayasi called Padmaavat. Makers of the film released a new poster which states the name Padmaavat with a beautiful line, “Music and direction by Sanjay Leela Bhansali”.
Film will hit the cinemas in many formats including 3d and IMAX 3D in Tamil and Telugu as well. Film is not a bilingual hence it will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu to grab the south Indian audience. Film is now banned in 4 different states Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, 3 of those are massive states which will affect the business of this film incredibly. A Total of 70-80 crores will be less in lifetime collections if the ban from these states are not lifted and Padmaavat is made on the budget of 200 crores so it could use all the money in the world.
Writing’s on the wall that Padmaavat will release on 25 January with Padman but no announcement from the people involved in this film came until today when everyone attached to film put out a poster. This is the second time Padmaavat is attempting a release and with a different name but Shree Rajput Karni Sena is hell bent on making sure that film faces permanent ban in the entire country and never gets a release. Portestors were outisde CBFC office raising heir voice against the film till police came and detained him. Padmaavat is the first Hindi film which will be gracing IMAX 3D format with it’s presence.
