Speaking to the media, Bhansali said, “Padmaavat has been made after facing a lot of difficulties. We [the makers] decided to release the film on January 25, but it was clashing with Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘PadMan’ and we requested him to move the release date of his film ahead and he agreed. I will always be grateful to him.” Bhansali also noted that film fraternity will be really proud of Akshay for this gesture.
Padmaavat, previously titled Padmavati, was originally scheduled to release last month but was postponed after its application for certification was rejected by the Prasoon Joshi-led Censor Board. The film has been opposed by fringe Rajput groups who are concerned that Padmaavat, based on the legend of Rani Padmini, incorrectly depicts a romance between the queen and Alauddin Khilji.
The film revolves around Rani Padmavati, the wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh, who is known for her beauty and valour in 13th century India. She captures the fancy of the reigning Sultan of Delhi, the tyrant Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh), who becomes obsessed with her.
