Karni Sena has left no stone unturned to delay the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historic film, Padmavati in India. But, it looks like the movie will hit theatres on its original release date – 1st December BUT ONLY IN BRITAIN.
If reports are to be believed, the magnum opus film, Padmavati, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor, will release in the UK on December 1.
The film has reportedly been given a yes by the British Board of Film Classification.

I guess after hearing this Sanjay Leela Bhansali might be a bit relieved, that at least the people in the United Kingdom will watch his movie.
The makers have also asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to expedite the certification process for the film, but the request has been turned down.
The Sri Rajput Karni Sena has been adamant that it won’t allow the film to be released in India even if any changes are made.
Yesterday at a press conference held in Delhi by the Karni Sena, this is what they said:
“My party members and I are totally against the film Padmavati’s release. Even after the changes, we will not allow it to hit the theatres. We will come out on the streets along with other social organizations and protest against it if it gets a release date.”
Also, governments of several states – Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh – have said that they might ban the movie in these states.
Let’s hope everything goes well, and we get to catch this film soon without any more issues.
