Padmaavat finally gets official release date

The film has faced strong opposition from several Rajput groups for alleged distortion of history. Previously, the makers had postponed the film indefinitely from its original release date of December 1 due to widespread protests by right-wing organisations across the country.

"Padmaavat" will be releasing the same day as Akshay Kumar's "PadMan".

Ranveer Singh, who is playing Sultan Allaudin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial epic Padmaavat took to twitter with rest of the cast including Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor and shared the official new poster of Padmaavat. On Friday, over 70 progressive of the Rajasthan-based Karni Sena were detained in Mumbai while protesting outside the CBFC office against the clearance given to Bhansali's film which was earlier titled Padmavati. "I haven't worked with him (Bhansali) for 10 years since my first film released". We hope we will surpass the expectations of our fans from across the world.
