Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ will hit the screens later this year in December. The film, which was first performed as a stage play by Bhansali in France in 2008, will also have a special release in Paris.
Whilst the entire plan is yet to be formulated, the Parisian release of Padmavati will be bigger than any previous Bollywood release, reports DNA India. Says a source, “Devdas had one of the biggest ever releases in Paris for an Indian film. But Padmavati, which is a familiar tale to the Parisians, thanks to the opera staged in 2008, will be released on an even bigger scale.”
Earlier plans were to dub the film in French for the Paris release. But this move was seen to be detrimental to the mood and flavour of the film. ‘Padmavati’ will now be released with French subtitles. Incidentally, Ranveer Singh, who plays the arch villain in the movie, has a special affinity with the city after he shot ‘Befikre’ (2016) there.
