Padmavati is one of the most expensive Indian films ever made. Initially scheduled for 1 December 2017, Padmavati faced opposition from right-wing Hindu groups for allegedly distorting historical facts, despite Bhansali’s insistence to the contrary. Amid violent protests in the country, a bounty was placed to behead Bhansali and Padukone. Its released was then indefinitely delayed. Later in December, the Central Board of Film Certification approved the film for theatrical exhibition and suggested 5 modifications to the film, which includes the addition of multiple disclaimers and amending its title to Padmavat. As per Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’ official statement, the film released on 25 January 2018 under the title Padmavat as proposed by the CBFC.
