Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ has been postponed indefinitely, as was revealed by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures last week. After the CBFC rejected their initial submission for certification due to “technical issues”, it seems the film has been sent to the board once again.
“The makers have submitted a fresh application to us yesterday for the 3D version. Now that they have applied for 3D (certification), we will have to look into the new application. The 2D application had come to us a while back,” said a source from CBFC, according to Deccan Chronicle.
The source also added, “We will have to scrutinise the application (again) and then follow the due process. So we have not given them any screening date yet”.
The film was initially set for release on 1st December but the film was “voluntarily deferred” due to the Rajput groups accusations and threats against the film’s team. A source close to the producers also said, “We are waiting for a screening date (from CBFC). Our clock has stopped now, we are just waiting and waiting. We will restart our plan (the release date) once we get the censor certificate”.
The film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
