LONDON: Bollywood epic movie, Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmavati has been put on hold in India; however, British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) cleared the movie for release without a single cut.
According to an Indian newspaper website, December 1 has been finalized for screening in Britain. The decision of the all-clear certification will buoy up the spirits of its makers who are faced with protests and serious threats back at home.
Passing the movie with a 12 A rating, the BBFC said that the film had “moderate violence and injury detail”.
The BBFC summarizes, “Padmavati is a Hindi language epic drama in which a Sultan leads an invasion to capture a Rajput queen.”
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s classic hit a major snag as the protesters claim the movie shows the Rajput queen Padmavati in bad light. However, the filmmakers contradicted these claims.
The film has been banned in two Indian states with others demanding cuts in the film.
The director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has clarified there will be “no romantic scene or song or dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji”. However, this failed to stop the protests. Even as Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat have banned the film, other BJP-ruled states have demanded that there should be no distortion of history in the film.
