‘Padmavati’ Uncut: Cleared by British censors for December 1 release

Even though the makers of ‘Padmavati’ have deferred the release of the film in India, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has cleared it for a release scheduled on December 1. 

Starring Ranveer Singh (as Sultan Alauddin Khilji), Deepika Padukone (as Rani Padmavati, in the lead) and Shahid Kapoor (as Maharawal Ratan Singh), ‘Padmavati’ is being distributed internationally by Paramount Pictures.According to the official website of the BBFC, ‘Padmavati’ will be released ‘uncut’ in the UK.

In India, ‘Padmavati’ is in the eye of a storm following protests from conservative groups over alleged tampering with historical facts. Bhansali has been denying the contention.The release of the film, which was earlier slated for December 1 in India, has been deferred as the film-makers are yet to secure a censor certificate.
