Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film ‘Padmavati’ has faced several obstacles in the production stage. This includes protests staged by groups who destroyed the sets, attacked the team and also the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) strike. When Deepika Padukone’s look from the film was finally made public, it was also revealed that the film will release on 1st December.
‘Padmavati’ was supposed to release in November. Due to this postponement, it would have clashed with the Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor’s ‘102 Not Out.’ This film, directed by Umesh Shukla, is based on a Gujarati play, and the makers are now considering another date for its release, reports First Post.
“We had announced our release date months ago. Now, suddenly they [Padmavati’s makers] postpone their film by two weeks with no thought to our inconvenience. The initial response was to take them on. But then, we decided to not ruin our chances, or theirs. We will come on a different date,” said a source from the ‘102 Not Out’ team. The director too, has confirmed that the film will no longer release on 1st December.
‘Padmavati’ also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the roles of Alauddin Khilji and Maharawal Ratan Singh respectively. ‘102 Not Out’ will see Bachchan and Kapoor playing a father and son duo and they will be collaborating on screen after 26 years.
