Decision On Padmavati Release Only After Gujarat Elections

Padmavati

There  is no likelihood  of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s beleaguered epic  being released  in December. The producers  have  decided to wait until the  Gujarat elections before  taking a call  on  a release date.

“We  won’t even announce a  release date until the elections,” says  a source  from thePadmavati  team.

Apparently the “instruction” to  hold the release  until the crucial elections has  come from  the ruling party’s  high command.

So when is  the  eagerly-anticipated  film  likely to be released?

“Well, if you insist on knowing we are looking at early January. If  you  look at the January schedule  there is only major release, and that’s Padman. So January looks  like  a good time to release Padmavati,” says  a source close  to  the film.

In the meanwhile selected shows  with leaders  of political  outfits are also being planned.

“We plan to  have selected  screenings as soon the CBFC  certifies  the film,” says  the source.

Viacom 18 intends  to invite the  Prime Minister  to watch  the  Film.
