His Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath had held the movie director responsible for hurting sentiments of Rajput community, while Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje government had sought edits in the film to remove objectionable sequences.

Amu also vowed not to allow the release of the movie and warned movie theaters to avoid playing the movie or risk being torched.

"There are issues with the film, our sympathy is with those who are protesting against the film and that is the reason we will not allow its release in the state till those issues are resolved", Rupani said.

"Following massive protests, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio behind Padmavati, on November 19, announced in a statement that they were voluntarily deferring the release of the film out of "respect and regard for the law of the land" including the Central Board of Film Certification".They said a new release date will be announced once the "requisite clearances" are in place. The controversy over the period drama raged on with an education officer in Madhya Pradesh's Dewas district issuing a circular banning a song from the film from being played in schools.

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), meanwhile, passed the film without cuts.

Well, the film was supposed to release on 1st December 2017, but due to these protests and CBFC delays now the film has been postponing for the next year.

Earlier this year brand director Alexandre Remy said: "We're constantly looking and prototyping". " Siege is its own game mode". A new map will also be added in this season, but not in the way that you might expect.


As the film was suppose to release on December 1, there are over 50 countries where this process (of certification) is on, he said.

Starring Deepika Padukone with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in key roles, the magnum opus tells the tale of Rani Padmavati, the legendary Mewar queen known for her beauty and intelligence as well as courage, her husband Maharawal Ratan Singh, a Rajput warrior king who fought to defend his kingdom and wife's honour, and Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film was given a 12A rating by the BBFC which passed it for audiences in the United Kingdom without any cuts.

Such reactions have disturbed members of the film fraternity. In recent times, several political leaders and goons of right-wing groups have announced death threats against Deepika and Bhansali.

We can't allow our history to be distorted.
