Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming period drama Padmavti might have been stalled in India,but the it is all set to hit the theatres on its original release date in UK. As per the reports say, the magnum opus, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, was supposed to be released in UK on December 1.
The film’s producers, however, assuring the media that the film will not be screened in British theatres before it is cleared by India’s censor board.
The film has reportedly been given a go-ahead by the British Board of Film Classification.
This comes as a major relief for the filmmakers of Padmavati as they were constrained to defer it in India because of protests and politics over alleged distortion of historical facts in the movie.
The makers had also asked CBFC to expedite the certification process for the film, but the request was turned down.
